Trio of Christmas Trees!

It has been a few days! I was out and about enjoying the sunshine this week with the boys (it was kind of sporadic so had to make the most of it when it came out!). But, today is dull and overcast so I got down into my craft room. Now it took me a while to get my mojo going but I've been needing to get some Stamp Barn cards made so I picked up this gorgeous christmas tree trio stamp and played around. The challenge over on Winter Wonderland is twinkle and sparkle so hopefully this card counts with my stickles on the stars and decorations.
It's a pretty straightforward card today - the image is coloured with my Prismacolour pencils and OMS, the back panel is distressed with inks and I used a Stamp Barn swirly stamp to create the design. The green organza ribbon and some liquid applique add the finishing touches. It's an unusual colour combo for me but I have to say I rather like it!
Thanks for coming over for a visit and for your comments! Hopefully I'll get to play a bit more as I got some gorgeous new Magnolia rubbah this week (some images from the Pet Collection over at Heathers and The Little Stamp Shoppe).
I hope you've all enjoyed a wonderful weekend and have a great week coming up.
