OCCC Christmas Tree Challenge

Morning All,
Before I set off on my crazy day I wanted to post this challenge card for the challenge at Our Creative Corner. There challenge was to design a card with a Christmas or pine tree. I love the look of "the" Christmas tree before you cut it down to bring home. So I recreated that. I stamped the pine tree from Christmas Lodge after coloring the stamp in Always Artichoke and Early Espresso, than I got out my Versamarker and adhered white embossing power for snow (I am loving that look!!). Layered on a piece of Frostwood Lodge DP which is on a white base. I adhered the Mini Jingle Bells with Linen Thread. I have found the trick with them is to unravel the thread so it is slightly thinner to go through the tiny holes. Hope you enjoy!
Thanks Karin

Great card! I enjoy the simple elements that make it beautiful and lovely. The twine and jingle bells are a nice touch.
