Sparkly Trees for Christmas

This week's Merry Monday challenge is to use a non-Evergreen tree.  I decided to use PTI stamps & combine it with the MIM challenge to use fussy cutting. The tree image from Through the Trees is embossed with Winter Wonderland embossing powder--one I seldom use.  VersaMagic Red Magic is used for the sentiment from Snowflake Flurries. I dry embossed the card front & added a double bow from white with silver twine.  The Freckled Fawn wooden star was painted white & covered with Stickles Frosted Lace. The red cardstock is from an old scrap I'm hoarding as it's one of my favorites & doesn't seem to be available now, so I'll take my card to The Playground. Thanks so much for taking time to visit my blog.
