Merry Christmas ~ Clean and Simple Design

Hi Everyone!
I have a Christmas card to share with you all.
I made a plan last month to get a start on my holiday cards and I have made about 5 of the 100 I need.
Better start moving my tail!
Anyways I made this card to enter into a few Challenges:
Creative Inspirations~Clean and Simple
The Paper Players~ #60 Clean and Simple Sketch
Bah! Humbug~ Something New

So here is my card....
I used a circle die and stamped the sentiment and tree using Memento ink and My Creative Time~ all Around Christmas Stamp set
The Trees were then colored with my copics and my something new~~ Creative Inspirations Paint!
I used Winter Frost to add some sparkle to the stars on the trees.
I did cut and color one additional tree and popped it up in the center sentiment circle for a little dimension.
The Merry Christmas sentiment is also from the same stamp set.
I also just ordered and received some Trendy Twine so that was added also in Peppermint Stick.

So another Christmas card down....only alot more to do :)
Thanks for stopping by and have a GREAT day!
