SSS Flickr Challenge #6 - Die Cuts; CASology - Festive; Muse - Christmas Tree

Hi everyone,
I'm playing along again in the current SSS Flickr Challenge, and the theme is 'Die Cuts'. I'm still working on my Christmas cards, so I grabbed my Layered Holiday Tree Set and created this card:





I die cut the tree onto the front panel and created an ombre with 3 different mint green inks (didn't realize I had so many). I die cut the star 3 times with gold foil paper and stacked them, stamped the sentiment with Versamark and gold embossing powder and added the sequins.

Come on over to the SSS Flickr Group Challenge and join in the fun...Barb Engler is our Hostess, and you can find all the info HERE!

I would also like to enter this card in this week's challenge at CASology for the theme 'Festive' and in the Muse Challenge - Christmas Tree.






 
Thanks for stopping by ~
