Oh Christmas Tree dee dee dee dee......

Hi blog friends.  Welcome to a festive edition of nomad wanderings.  It's Beat the Christmas Rush deadline today for this month so here's what I've been working on.....

Blingy cards always look so nice in person, so to speak, and are rarely photogenic!!  Anyway.....  I've used a green card blank that I swiped with galaxy gold Brilliance ink.  The frame and backing paper are from the stash, I don't know the maker.  I cut an aperture in the tree paper and then ripped a bit more off to give the white edge.  I stamped the background in silver ink with various snowflakes from Papermania Sleigh set.    The tree is Memory Box Frosted Christmas Tree which I have added red glitter glue to.  A couple of glittery flourishes cut using Sizzlit flowers with stem and leaves and a die cut Season greetings with green glitter paper backing.    I've got  a couple more trees glittered up.  Just waiting for them to dry and the plan is to make a couple more of these later.  I'll update with a photo and my running total for BtCR.
