O Christmas Tree

It feels so good to finally feel up to being in my craft room!  Four weeks of recuperating from surgery is not my cup of tea!

I was so glad I saw the inspiration at Inspired by All the Little Things and will enter this card.  Their challenge #72 is this inspiration photo:

I think this photo is so pretty with the gray and white color palette and clean lines, which is what the inspiration for this card is.   I used a die that I bought a LONG time ago and then couldn't think of what to do with it when I got it!  Was so glad to use it for the clean lines.

I edged each layer of the tree, and the hill, with white Nuvo drops then sprinkled on some sparkly glitter.  The background is a piece of gray card stock from my stash that I inked with some gray and black inks and added white pigment ink around the edges of the tree.  Splashed on some white acrylic paint spatters for a snow effect.

This was a huge challenge to photograph and get remotely close to how it looks in real life!  Makes me wish I knew how to use a real camera!!

Thanks so much for taking a look!
