O' Christmas Tree

Good evening. I have two post to share with you tonight. The first is for the new challenge over on the ABC Christmas Blog where our new theme that started yesterday is

O Christmas Tree
Our fab sponsor this time is: Bugaboo Stamps
 One lucky Random winner will win 7 Digi images for their choice
This is the card that just did not want to come together, funny as when I look at it now it seems simple enough. The image is from a Hero Arts set that I had picked up last holiday season. It has been embossed in white and then I have used Perfect Pearls to add some colour, up close it has a gorgeous shimmer.
The problem was the layout of the card, this image is quite large and really stood out on its own so I didn't want anything too fussy but when I was trying to pair it up it just kept fading into the bold papers. Finally I have found a layout that works and I have added just some dimensional glitter to decorate the tree and finish it all off.
I hope that you will join us for our challenge. I look forward to seeing your beautiful Christmas Trees.

Lovely card, Cariss, and I know what you mean. I think it has to do with the kraft fades away somehow, or maybe we're just used to the white.
