Decorated Tree Sketch

I finally got to play along with the sketch this week at the Waltzingmouse Sketch Challenge Blog!  This week's designer is the sweet and talented Teresa Kline!


There are so many lovely samples from the Mischief Makers already, all kinds of different interpretations!  I was thinking "tree"...


A Christmas tree for me!  I decorated a PTI Christmas tree die cut with the beautiful Vintage Christmas Backgrounder.  The sentiment is from the new Ornate Ornaments set and the snowflakes are from the original Compliments of the Season.


I stamped the Vintage Christmas Backgrounder with Fern ink and heat embossed it with clear powder. Decorated it with Ruby Red Liquid Pearls.  The little banner is made with gingham linen washi tape.  A big button to finish it off...and of course a bell so that my card jingles!

Lovely card. I love the background papers, the washi tape (you really are gingham girl aren't you), the big button and the jingle bell, and that tree wow !!!
What a neat idea to use the background stamp on the die cut tree - instant pattern and texture.
