Shimmery Christmas Tree:

Good morning all - the sun is shining and the weather is going to be gorgeous this week.  I got all my flower gardens/pots finished this weekend so I know they will enjoy the sun more than me :)


Today I am sharing a very CAS today with you.  I found a bunch of un-inked Christmas stamps that I didn't even know I had, dusted them off, and found one to ink.


Sorry for the poor quality photo.  I find shimmer white paper is one of the hardest things to photograph.
Card Ingredients:  Hero Arts and Studio G stamps, Craftsmart Violet ink, Bazzill shimmer cardstock, Recollections gems.  Tools:  Martha Stewart scoreboard.

I made this Christmas card for the following challenges:  Christmas Card Challenge - unused stamps, ABC Christmas - icy inspiration, CSYAL - one layer, Jingle Belles - embossing, Sparkles - Oh Christmas Tree, 52 Christmas Card - color inspiration:


Have a great Monday - thanks for the visit!!

The shimmer may be hard to photograph, but it adds so much! Just enough bling to dress up CAS.
