Festival of Trees CCMC323

What a great sketch we have this week at Create with Connie and Mary!    I am so glad to open my Festival of Trees set for the first time and ink it up!  I thought this sketch would work well for a Christmas card!

I started with a Blackberry Bliss card base then overlaid it with Brushed Gold; this angled layout has been quite popular lately in papercrafting circles!  I added a banner of Blackberry Bliss then one of that beautiful Gold Striped Vellum! 

Next I die cut a circle of the snowflake paper from the Trim The Tree DSP Paper Stack and stamped it with "joy".

I stamped the solid tree from the set in Blackberry Bliss then overstamped it with the tinsel in Encore Gold ink.  (Let it dry awhile or it will smear).  Next I punched it out with the Tree Punch and adhered it to the circle background, topping it with a Gold Glimmer star!  Scatter a few Frosted Sequin snowflakes around and done!

Stamps:  Festival of Trees, Endless Wishes
Ink:  Encore Gold; Blackberry Bliss
Paper:  Blackberry Bliss, Brushed Gold, Gold Vellum, Whisper White, Trim the Tree Paper Stack, Gold Glimmer Paper.
Accessories:  Circle Framelit, Tree Punch, Frosted Sequins Embellishments, Big Shot, Star Punch.

Here is the sketch from Create with Connie and Mary for the challenge this week:
