OH CHRISTMAS TREE....

Over at JUST CUTE BEARS this week the brief is "ANYTHING BUT SQUARE and INCLUDE A TAG".....another excuse for me to make a shaped card :0)...i do love my square cards,but must admit i do like a bit of variety...the spice of life...lol.
The card does fold down to fit just perfect into a 6x6 square envelope.
I've used a template to cut the tree shape....and i wasn't happy with the colour of the green cardstock i'd used...so out came my Cosmic Shimmer misters,the problem then should i use rich gold or silver...if in doubt go for the two,you guessed it i did!...must admit IRL it shimmers beautifully :0)..and then to give it alittle more sparkle i added some stickles to the outer edge...i wish i could take some good photo's i can never capture the shimmer and shine like some of you experts out there :0).
The stamp i've used is a FF one coloured with Promarkers and Prisma's then cut out in a triangle shape to fit nicely in the tree shape...i've also given this the gold treatment...i've rubbed an old gold ink pad all around the image and also on the tag containing the sentiment....the sentiment was part of the main FF stamp but i used it seperately.
I've finished off with a bell charm and alittle glamour dust.
I'm also entering this card into:-
OUR CREATIVE CORNER.....this week the challenge is "CHRISTMAS IN JULY"
STAMP SOMETHING....same again "CHRISTMAS IN JULY"

Well that's about it for now...would just like to thank all who joined us on last weeks challenge you made some amazing creations...hope to see you all again this week.....remember there's only one rule apert from the theme and that's you must use one cute bear image on your project...now that's no hardship is it......LOL.

Take care and have a lovely day
