Winter Wonderland - Challenge #1 Oh Christmas Tree

Hello everyone well this is such an exciting day!!! It is the first challenge over at Winter Wonderland . The excitement of christmas begins now. Get prepared at a stressfree pace. Please try to make time to join in with this weeks theme which is "Oh Christmas Tree".

There is a lovely prize on offer. Kindly dontated by Teri.

I made this card using my stampbord that I found lying in my stash. I put all the squares together and used my paperartsy christmas tree stamp to create the image. I heat embossed the image so I could use my H2O's to colour in. I created the background with a mixture of the colours on the trees. I used some nesties to layer the main image onto and the base card is glimmer misted and then some swirls have been stamped onto it. I added the tartan ribbon and used rub-ons to create the sentiment.

Please pop over to Joey , Anne , Teri , Lesley and Sam's blogs to check out their DT's. Can't wait to come and see all your yummy creations. I hope you have as much fun as we all are making your christmas cards in advance.

Honestly Pascale .... this is stunning! I love the colours and the shimmer. I've never used the twikling H2O's ... but I'm going to try them now! xxxx

Anne said...

Oh Wow Pascale!! I was wondering how you'd done this - I've not really used Stampboard - I've tried it but never actually accomplished anything! I absolutely adore your card, it's so vibrant and funky!! I am so glad you're part of this team, I love everything you do - it's going to be great fun!! Hugs xxx

This is a BEAUTIFUL card! I love the shimmer and the colors! And I love that you cut the stamp up into 4 blocks... I wouldn't have thought to do that, but I love the effect it creates!
