Holiday Wishes

Friday night, 8pm, and I have finished a card!  Tonight I have a Christmas card for you.  I am actually excited about participating in these Christmas card challenges because:
1. I can use stamps I usually reserve for 1-2 months a year all year long, and
2. I can have most or all of my Christmas cards completed prior to the holiday   
    season, freeing me up to do other things!

The sketch comes from Christmas Challenges.  I am also entering this over at Sparkles Forum Christmas Challenge - trees and Christmas Card Challenges.  All DP is from Mind's Eye, tree is from Stampabilities and sentiment is from PaperTrey.  You can't tell very well from the photo, but the dp is very glittery and sparkly.  I colored the tree with Copics, stamped the image with Memento and the sentiment with red Versafine.  I pierced a ring around the tree since it is such a simple element.  I thought it needed a little something else.

Thanks for stopping by.
