Sparkly Christmas Trees

Hi Folks
Hope you are well on this Thursday evening.  I really think that it is getting quite chilly in the evenings now.  Still, it is November so to be expected.  At least I haven't had to scrape the ice off the car yet lol.

Tonight I want to share a christmas card that I have done using Imagination Crafts products.  I have used the fir trees stencil and background card together with Sparkle Medium.


I used the stencil and green sparkle medium on the fir tree background card.  When it was dry I matted onto green mirror card.  The tartan background paper is from Papermania and has also been matted onto green mirror card.  I added some christmas ribbon across the bottom of the card and a little snowman embellishment from my stash.  Some gems and a little snowflake finished the card.  

Thanks for popping by and would love to know what you think.
