CD Sunday challenge - Oh Christmas Tree!

The theme at CD Sunday Challenge blog this week is - Oh Christmas Tree.  I thought today I would not drag my heels thinking about what I would do, then finding I have run out of time.  So I decided to sit down now & make a card.  Here it is...............

The images I have used are from My Craft Studio CD "Magic of Christmas" (Traditional Volume 1) & they are called - "Fetching the Tree",  The sentiment is also from My Craft Studio this time the CD is "More than Just Words"  (Christmas Carols & More") - Oh Christmas Tree!

I decided on an easel card & used an 8x8 fancy edge card.  I trimmed the backing paper to go inside & layered it onto silver mirror card leaving a very narrow border.  I gave the image a blue border in MCS, then layered that as well on silver card & did the same with the sentiment.  I printed out an extra topper & cut out the little bunny & decoupaged him - only 1 layer - but it is still decoupage :).  I felt something else was needed & put a little bit of glitter on the topper to highlight the trees - I don't do much glitter - but this card called for it.  Then before putting it all together I laid a piece of silver ribbon across the centre of the easel.

Here is a close up of the main image & the easel stopper which is a silver snowflake peel off placed on silver mirror card.

& a close up of the sentiment.

Another Christmas Card made & I think I know who I will sent this one to.
