Tinsel Tree

Had time to play along with "The Challenge #15" on Lesley Croghan's blog "Always Playing with Paper."
Here it is... to use the sketch on the left, the colors on the right, or both!



I chose to make a Christmas card with both the colors and the sketch, tilted sideways...


I was inspired by my new "O' Tannenbaum" set from Papertrey Ink and this paper that's light grey with pink stars.


The tree is actually stamped in Delicata Silver ink, but it looks embossed (and kind of tinsel-y if that is a word!) Now, if you want to see a really spectacular Christmas tree with another from the set...and some PINK...head over to Renee's blog!  This card HERE is droolworthy!

Thanks to Lesley and her DT for such a fun challenge!
