Have a tree-mendous Christmas

While looking through my stash of Christmas elements I found this Christmas tree... die cut from a watercoloured piece ... smooched Distress Ink in greens and yellow and then I'd stamped over this a flourish and gold embossed it. For the background panel I used a snowflake embossing folder and then flicked yellow metallic Twinkling H2Os over it for some extra sparkle.  I inked my sentiment with  a Kaleidacolor pad in yellows and greens and roughly cut around it. To finish I added my elements to a green card and topped my tree with a shiny gold die cut star.  I am playing along with CAS Watercolour September challenge - Tree and also at Happy Little Stampers Christmas challenge - Optional Twist - Tree and Addicted to Stamps challenge #166 - Christmas Comes Early.  Thanks for visiting and enjoy your weekend.
