Christmas Tree Row

Hi everyone, this week the challenge on Dutch Dare is to make a Christmas card. I've used my Spiral Whisper 'Christmas Tree Row' stamp design which is water coloured with Distress inks and sprinkled with lovely sparkly glamour dust. The image is matted on sage green bazzil and popped up on dimension tape. The background layer is white card embossed in the cuttlebug and matted on the green bazzil. I added the little tab with a woodware sentiment and decorated with tartan ribbon, red bow and little gems. TFL.

Back soon,
Chris

Beautiful!
This is one of the stamps I've been drooling over on the Spiral Whisper site. :)
Thanks for using it and letting me see it in all its glory (a.k.a. your brilliant colouring)

Hugs,
