Oh Christmas Tree

Hello fellow crafters,
I think the global weather has gone crazy - while all of you in the Northern Hemisphere are freezing your little toes off under heavy snow, we here in Australia are experiencing temperatures way above normal, and extremely high humidity which is very unpleasant. While much of eastern Australia is still recovering from severe floods, there are major bushfires out of control in Victoria.

We could talk about the weather endlessly, but let's get onto more interesting things. Penny's Paper Crafty has a new challenge for you, and our theme is
Our generous sponsors are
 I was given this cute image, Little Tree, by Limited Runs Digital Stamps to play with, and this is what I created.
The card base was cut using my Cricut.
As usual, I coloured the image with Promarkers. I put dots of  Liquid Pearls
on the image's snowflakes, but as I suspected it would, the ink 'bled' through, so,
when the Liquid Pearls was dry, I then added Star Dust Stickles on top.
Side-on view
Inside the card. Those 2 little trees are bright green stickers with gold stars
but the refelection of the red card stock above them makes
them look black and red.

Paper Makeup Stamps #81 - 'Fancy Folds'
Can You Digi It #32 - 'Pick A Season' (WINNER)

It felt strange creating a Christmas card in March, but I may continue the trend so I can avoid the awful sense of panic I usually have in November and December.
