Oh Christmas Tree!

I've decided I really need to hurry up and get my Christmas cards done, so I'll be hanging out in my craft room for the next few days. There are so many challenges that I want to do this week, so I've combined three challenges to make this card. I've used the sketch #51 from Papertake Weekly blog, the theme from Daring Cardmakers - Spots and Stripes, and The Pink Elephant blog theme of using the colours RED, BLUE and GREEN.

I used the tree stamp from the 'Hooo Loves Christmas' stamp set from AnnaBelle Stamps. I stamped it onto some grungy green Kaisercraft designer paper, coloured the baubles with a red PrismaColor marker and put some Dimensional Magic over them to give more dimension. The spotty and stripy papers are from the Kaisercraft Christmas Carnival 6 x 6 paper pad, the greeting is a rub-on by Imaginesce and I've added some white grosgrain ribbon, some aqua satin ribbon and some skinny red satin ribbon finished with a bow. The blue and red cardstock are from Pedigree Papers.

Thanks for looking, hopefully I'll be back tomorrow with another card!
