It's Mary's turn to choose our challenge this fortnight and it had two parts trees and mixed media. My card has colour washing with Stampin' Up! re-inkers, glitter added with the fine tip glue pen and heat embossing. I've also added an embossed sentiment with a staple and created a spotlight effect with the centre trees.
I've used the timeless stamp set Lovely as a Tree which has been in the Stampin' Up! catalogue for many, many years now and it seems to appeal to everyone. It is a trusty set that you can rely on with various trees that suit Christmas cards to the more challenging masculine cards.
Sadly today the weather has not been on my side for taking photos so I've tried a few times with lights and I hope you can see the colours and texture involved.
Please do go visit all the other lovely ladies in our Christmas Card Club Challenge. You can find their blogs in my sidebar.
Thanks for stopping by and have a good week. Zx
