Oh Christmas Tree

Hi Everyone! I've had a busy couple days getting the house all decked out for Christmas. The kids and I decorated the tree with ornaments today. There is something so magical about Christmas trees. I'm hoping to make some crafty garland with the kids this year to keep their little hands busy while they wait for Christmas. :) 

My card today features the Wherever You Are stamp by Penny Black. Its so elegant with the script, text and graphic elements. I inked up the stamp twice with two shades of green ink. I used a circle punch to cut out and highlight the sundial portion of the stamp and added glitter to the tree. I used my favorite jewel toned cardstock and a few embellishments to compliment the stamped image.

Hope you are having a great day!

Love these pretty colors, Ashley! Beautiful card! Sounds like you had a fun time with the kids. Brings back memories of when mine were little. Half the fun was watching how excited they get for Christmas! Enjoy them, my friend!
