Winter Wonderland - A Festive Tree!

Hi everyone!

Welcome to another Friday challenge at Winter Wonderland!  This week our lovely Lynsey has given us the challenge of 'A Festive Tree' for this coming week.  So why don't you break out your christmas tree stamps and come and join us!

I decided to keep my card fairly simple this week and inked up a stamp that I haven't used in ages.  It's such a pretty tree too - quite modern and whimsical!  And because of that I thought I'd keep to a fun colour combo and went with pink & green again!  I coloured the image with copics and added some bling adhesives to the tree.  Paper is BG Eskimo Kisses and I embossed a panel using the circle trees cuttlebug folder.  I also brought out my MS tree border punch to add detail to the other side of the card.  Pink silk ribbon with a pearl ribbon slider adds a touch of elegance.  The sentiment is from The Stamp Barn.

Our challenge this week is sponsored by Terri's Delicious Doodles Digi Store.  She has some really beautiful images and the winner will win 3 digis of their choice!

Apologies for my lack of posting this week - I've been so busy with the end of school coming up next week and softball games etc.!  The boys have their tournament this weekend and then the season is over so I should be having more time to play - yippee!  AND, my mom just bought a Cricut machine for me as an early 40th birthday gift which I'm really thrilled about!!  I can't wait to have a bit more spare time to sit and really play with it!

Have a wonderful Friday and I hope you all have a wonderful start to the weekend!

Hugs,
