Best Wishes

Yea!! My new PTI stamps arrived today and I had to put together a quick card! 

I love tree images for some reason.  I'm not sure what it is, but I just love them...especially if the branches are bare and I can build my own tree.  I also like to hang things from trees.  As I looked at my new sets today I thought that the ornaments from PTI's "Tiny Treats: Christmas" set would be perfect hung from the "Merry Little Christmas" tree!


Sorry about the quality of these photos! I had a terrible time getting a good picture of this card.  For some reason the purple ribbon wanted to show up as bluish. 

I stamped the dotted line from the Merry Little Christmas set and then masked off parts of the ornament image to line up with the other dotted line.  The lines are slightly different, so if I do this again, I'd mask off the lines from the ornament image as well.


I used white liquid applique on the tree branches and on the hills for snow.  It's been a while since I've pulled that stuff out but boy is it fun to watch it transform from liquid to...puff! :)  LOL!


I used my copics to color the rhinestones yellow.  Isn't that little bird so cute?  :)

This is also my entry for the Tuesday Throwdown challenge:  Anything Goes!

Thanks for stopping by!  Hope you enjoyed this card!  Have a great day!
