It's simply 'Merry'

Hello and Welcome. Here's what I have been up to for
the CAS Christmas Challenge. This month's prompt is Tree
Such a simple one? Which way will I go? Dies or Stamps?

I landed up with trees as I had this tiny stitched cut out
 left over from a previous card and 
 a perfect backdrop for my snowy trees.
It's simply smooched lots with Screamin' Banshee Black Magicals.
You will see it used quite a bit in the lead up to Christmas.
I cut out my trees with some Mulberry type paper
heat embossed and added glitter, I flicked
some white acrylic paint to the background sky for the snow,
popping the trees and adding a star.
Cut out the Merry from Lawn Fawn.
Card Base is Ripple Card Stock.

Since I am WAY BEHIND with Christmas cards
I'm sure you will see more before the end of the month.

I will added this to the Monochrome Magic Challenge Gallery
for the  
as I have only used the Black Magicals 
as my Monochorome colour.
Hope that it counts.
Thanks for dropping in.

Hope you leave a comment as I love reading them.

The Magicals sky with the white acrylic snow is amazing, Ina! And you made such unique and beautiful trees with Mulberry paper. I'm sure the heat-embossing and glitter effects are more gorgeous in real life. The textured card base adds interest too.
Thanks so much for sharing this beauty at CAS Christmas! Hideko xx
