Christmas Pine

Wow! Time is flying by! Christmas is coming up fast and I still have so many Christmas cards left to do! I better get my booty in gear, I think!

Today's new challenge at Shelly's Images is Show Us What You Got! That means Anything Goes! Whoo Hoo! We know how much you all love this one, and so do I! You can make anything you want, and link up with us for your chance to win a fun prize from Shelly's Images!

I went with a Christmas theme for my project, so I can keep plugging away at getting my Christmas cards done. I found this Pine patterned paper in my stash and knew right away it was perfect for this card! Polka dots seemed like a fun addition, too, to compliment the pine. Of course, then I had to throw in some stripes to complete the effect. (I love spots and stripes together!) Pine is today's featured image at Shelly's Images. (That means it is available, today only, for a special price, in the Shelly's Images Store). I've colored the image with Promarkers, then cut it out and attached it with foam mounting tape for added dimension and 3D effect. The sentiment is hand stamped and is from the Teeny Tiny Wishes set by Stampin Up, then punched with the word window and modern label punches, also by Stampin Up.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
