One Layer Christmas Card

Penny Black Saturday Challenge
The September theme at Penny Black Saturday Challenge is One Layer cards.  We want to see your cards made with a single piece of cardstock--no additional layers.  Surprise, surprise--I made a Christmas card!  
I colored the PB image (christmas lights) with a Distress Marker & added matching glitter to the pine needles.  The ornaments were colored with a red Spectrum Noir sparkle pen & covered with Crystal Lacquer.
I used a gold gel pen to attach them to the swirls.  Love this PB sentiment (beautiful season) which is stamped in brown ink. Finished off with some green splatters.  I'm also entering the Penny Black Holiday Head Start challenge, Christmas Card Challenges, CAS on Friday & SSS Wednesday. Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.
