walking in a winter wonderland

Today we have another fabulous challenge at Crafts 4 Eternity

We are required to use the sketch (which I turned on its side) AND add a Christmas tree.

I am also entering this into the following challenges:

'sweet treat': Cupcake Craft Challenges
'Christmas': Stampavie & More
'die cutting/punches': A Spoon Full of Sugar
'punches & die cuts': Simon Says
'main colour blue': Theme Thursday
'transparent element': Cute Card Thursday (top layer of tree)
'chipboard': If the Show Fits (bottom layer of tree)
'claret & blue': Something Completely Different
'winter wonderland': Fussy & Fancy Friday
'punches': Creative Card Crew
'G is for glitter': ABC Challenge

For my piece I have used Little Yellow Bicycle ~ Christmas Delight papers. So pretty and I love the extra thick cardstock weight. Thick and luxuriant. I hate when our fave paper manufacturers substitute ultra flimsy papers for the same cardstock price, but not so with these LYB papers. I have used Frosty Flurries, Reindeer Crossing and Starry Night.

For the tree I used a Tattered Angel ~ Glimmer Chip Tree which I glitzed with Glimmer Glam before adding a matching Glimmer Glass tree with glossy accents. I spritzed on some glimmer mists and added more glimmer glam! WOW! That was a mouthful!

I just love this sweet Magnolia - Gingerbread Tilda. I coloured her with copics and added some stickles.

On the edges of the snowflake papers, I brushed some Glimmer Glam. Just wished it came with its own applicator so I don't have to keep washing it up!  Otherwise I love it!

The ric rac ribbon is felt ribbon which I also brushed with Glimmer Glam. WOW! Love the transformation that gave! 

Added some diecut snowflakes and there you have it!

Thank you for looking.
