Still working on trees!

I am still trying to design some CAS Christmas cards that will be light to post...
I decided that a Christmas tree would be a good theme.

My earlier idea developed into this:-

Instead of stamping directly on to the card base (OLC before),
 I embossed onto another piece of card,
 cut it out and matted it onto the card base.

Then on someone's blog I saw a tree made of scraps -
 I developed it a little and it became this:-

I had the tiny 'tree lights' in my stash!

Then on Delicious Doodles I spotted this Celtic Xmas Tree...

A little colour from Promarkers, distress ink around the image, a matching card base
and then a bow and a button!

Here is the pink version:-

These trees were printed on white card but then I thought about printing them on DP...

This time I just added some distress ink around the image, matted onto a deckle edge card base and added a flower and some form of ribbon or bow.

I am going to submit this card to

Happy Crafting!
