Christmas Trees

Hallo,
Well I haven't gotten much crafting done in the last couple days...but I did get to stop in at A.C. Moore yesterday and spend my Birthday gift certificate on some really good sales (and then went back today because the sales on were so good on a couple paper packs that I decided to get a couple more - and I needed some workable fixative for a couple ornaments I am trying to do....)
I did these 2 cards for the current challenge over at Flourishes for the Timeless Tuesday challenges - the challenge this time was to use trees and/or leaves. I have many, many of their floral images but few trees so I decided to use the Christmas tree. Check out the challenge and all the great inpiration from the DT here - www.flourishes.org/blog/

The DP that I stamped the tree on is something new from Tim Holtz - a craft resist cardstock, this one from the Christmas pack. I sprayed the cardstock with gold and green glimmer mist and Memory mist and then embossed the tree onto the more gold one with vintage photo distress powder and the more green one with red powder.
I accented the tree and the card with liquid pearls (tulip) and gold viva decor pens.
All for me today - need to get a nap before work tonight....
Take Care
Tera
