Christmas Sparkle, Shimmer and Bling

This quick Christmas card is for several challenges, Merry Monday 'Sparkle, Shimmer and Bling', Cuttlebug Mania 'Bling' and a trip to the playground at  Pixie's Crafty Workshop.

Card blank: 6" x 4" white silk 
Die: Memory Box 'Sparkling Tree Tile'
Embossing Folder: Crafts-Too 'Twinkle'
Other: Wink of Stella
Snippets: White card, gold sparkle card, rhinestones

I die cut the tree from gold sparkle card, then trimmed around the edge leaving a small border before attaching the tree to a snippet of white card.  I embossed the front of my card blank and then attached the tree with foam tape.  I coloured the baubles on the tree with a Wink of Stella and added small and medium rhinestones to the centre of the flowers.
