Season's Greetings

I've used one of my favourite stamps for this card which I'm entering into several challenges - Merry Monday  'Pink, Green and White', Alphabet Challenge 'T for 'Tis the Season' and Christmas Cards All Year Round 'Oh Christmas Tree'.


Card blank: 7" x 5" white silk
Stamp: Woodware 'Holly Tree' and 'Christmas Bubble Tree'
Ink: Versafine Olympia Green
Card: Dark green matt, white silk
Paper: Wild Rose Studio 'Painted Poinsettias', Kaisercraft Christmas paper Pad (magazine freebie)
Other: Silver nailheads, tiny pearls, Wink of Stella

I stamped the tree and sentiment onto white card and trimmed it to size.  This was then layered onto pink paper and green card before being attached to the card front.  I stamped the tree, pot and star onto another piece of pink paper and paper pieced it onto the card.  The holly leaves and bow were stamped onto a green paper before being attached to the card with Pinflair glue.  I decorated the tree with silver nailheads and tiny pearls before outlining the stamping with a Wink of Stella.  When I had finished the card I noticed that my sentiment wasn't in the centre of the tree, so I stamped a small star and paper pieced it with pink paper.
