The current Less is More Challenge
is a metallic element plus a colour. I am linking this card to this challenge.
I embossed a tree from SU's 'Lovely as a Tree' - one of my favourite stamp sets - in gold.
I glued this on top of a red Christmas red card strip, added a red star to the top of the tree and then a simple sentiment 'Merry Christmas'.
This card is a little bit 'More'.
The tree and star are the same but the strip is cut from a piece of card with colour added using a brayer and a mask, It was then over stamped with another tree stamp from 'Lovely as a Tree'.
I then added the Freebie image from Bugaboo's Friday Dec 6th Challenge. This was coloured with Promarkers, with added glitter.

And then I moved on to a sketch...
and here is my take on it...
I started with a shaped white card base and chose various turquoise papers from my scraps and Papermania 12 Days of Christmas.
I cut two banners and a five pointed star from these and also mounted my stamped sentiment.
I added silver Stickles around the star.
I had made several snowflakes using the Tim Holtz Snowflake rosette die -
I added three of these.
I am also linking this as my final entry to the
Catch the Bug Holiday Chaos Celebration - Anything Goes
I think this card is going to be one that will be handed someone -
so it will be for someone special!
I am submitting it to
and also CHNC Challenge Extra for December
