This was done totally inspired by this beauty found in Claudia's gallery yesterday as she is this weeks featured stamper. The blue shimmer is from stardream, the white powder is SU. this one is A-6 in real life and this was a third attempt. the clean and simple ones always seem to take longer or have more goofs that are not save able than cards you can layer on the sentiments.
I originally started this card with some ocean tide from PTI but, it really is more green than this in real life and I also tried stamping the sentiment to the same panel as the tree but, it just looked funny with the tying on a ribbon. even a sheer one so, I ended up stamping this sentiment again on a scrap to pop it up over the ribbon.
The February Christmas card challenge theme is snowmen and I got this cutie in my Christmas stocking ( its an itty bitty from Unity stamps) that stamped panel is up on pop dots. and this one is also A-6 in real life there are some glitter gel pens and stardust stickles on this trying for some dimension of where the snow should have been thicker.
