Oh Christmas Tree, Oh Christmas Tree.......

How lovely are your branches! Especially when they're adorned in red, white and silver!

This is my new favorite Christmas color combination.

My son is in his schools Chamber Orchestra, and they performed at one of the local malls earlier this week. While waiting for them to get set up, a friend and I browsed the shops in the mall and one of them was all decked out in red, white and silver. It was stunning!!! I knew then and there I wanted to make a card using those colors.

Here is that card:

I printed the Three Christmas Trees (Pink Cat Studio)image out and colored alternating stripes with a red Copic.

I then went back and covered the other stripes with Glossy Accents and sprinkled on Dazzling Diamonds.

I colored the tree topper and Christmas balls with silver stickles.

Punched out the oval shape with my Cuttlebug and Oval Nestie and layered it on top of some white panels that I had cuttlebugged with the snowflakes folder, red designer paper and silver and red card stock. Then I set about adding the extras.

Extras: Silver ric rac, red and silver cording, punched snowflakes, buttons, stamped sentiment.

This card sparkles and shines just like the window display that inspired it.

Here is a close up of the sparkle:

I hope you like it as much as I do!

I'm heading out to watch my son perform his TVC (television commercial) for a speech tournament. It's really funny and I don't want to miss it! I'll be back tomorrow with some more Christmas cards!

Have a great day and thanks for stopping by! TTFN

Hugs, Becky
