Christmas Pines


Here I am with my last card for the week. It is for the Queen for the Day challenge on Splitcoaststampers. The newly crowned queen is Peggy aka pegmac71. This is the card I cased.
Isn't her card beautiful? Of course, I changed it up quite a bit and made mine Christmas.  I added a layer, also. The ribbon was moved up and I added a sentiment.

My stamps are from Mark's Finest Papers and Stamps, A Heinrich Co.  The image is New Pines and the sentiment is Greetings of the Season Mini.

Recipe:
Accessories: Martha Stewart aspen snowflake punch around the page, Cuttlebug snowflakes embossing folder, Tim Holtz Distress embossing ink, Tim Holtz Distress embossing powder/peeled paint, Ribbon FX satin stripe ribbon, Recollections red gemstone, hand cut banner

My card is entered into the Aud Sentiments challenge to make a card or project with a Christmas or holiday sentiment.
