Christmas stars

Greetings to all my blogging friends.
In 5 months I guess we will just about have all our Christmas cards, made and posted. I hope for me that will be the case. Well here is another card to add to the collection.

This is what I did.
Paper: White cardstock, matted red Bazzil and then white card which had been put through the cuttlebug stars folder.
Christmas tree cut with a Nellie Snellen MFD
The Image is from Digi4joy, stamped on water colour paper, coloured with a combination of aquarelles, twinkling H2O's and distress ink pads. Some of the bows and ribbons have stickles, frosted lace or icicles, this is mounted on 3D foam pads.
Sentiment: a local company Great impressions.

I am entering this in a number of challenges:
Simon Says Stamp challenge...Anything goes... They are trying to reach a 1000 submissions this week.
The Outlawz... Monday greeting card... Christmas in July
Digi4Joy... Christmas ....snow and ice
Charisma Cards... It's in the stars
Craftyhazelnuts Christmas Challenge ... Seeing stars

Enjoy the rest of the week everyone. We are supposed to be having some nice warm days. Hope they are right.

Just love your embossed background. I do have this embossing folder but as yet not used it. I really like the tree and gifts, especially like how the gifts stand out against the background.

I love how you did the embossing on this!! That is such a clever idea. I just wish I could get myself to do Christmas cards before winter, but I have no will to do them! LOL Best, Curt
