EBTKS-Challenge #4

OH mY gOSh!
You have got to check out the fabulous fun cards from the talented Designers over at http://ebtkschallenge.blogspot.comI thought about making a card all week long. Finally, I figured out what I wanted to do -- in the middle of the night - ha ha! Then I made the mistake of checking out everyone's entries and now I'm not so sure I want to post my card :o) There are some fabulous creative ladies out there in Blogland. Well, I did have fun with this and that's the point of these challenges, right?

My Card~ The trees are punched squares cut in half diagonally and taped onto the toothpick trunks
Stamp: "Merry Christmas" from Making Memories clear stamp set 'FaLaLa'
Ink: Library Green from Archival Inks
Card stock: White base card, navy blue, white glossy (snow) and greens (trees) is all from my SU stash (sorry, don't know the proper color names)
Cuttlebug Folders: Snowflakes (dark blue), Divine Swirl (trees) and Swiss Dot (snow)
Punch: 1 1/4" Square from EKSuccess
Embellishments: White pearls from Marth Stewart, green sheer ribbon form Michael's, Crystal glitter on snow from Stickles

Thanks for stopping by, enjoy the rest of your evening!
