absc30 - O Christmas Tree

Hello and welcome to the newest Annabelle Sketch Challenge.  Isn't this a wonderful sketch.  You will notice on my card that I followed the sketch as closely as possible with the exceptin of my focal piece which had to be moved slight upwards in order to fit in my bling with the sentiment.

F or this card I used one of the newest releases from Annabelle Stamps (Hoo Loves Christmas) and this time I chose to use the Tree image.  I wanted a pretty traditional color scheme so I went with Real Red and Glorious Green (SU) and some patterned paper from a retired SU Christmas line.  The scalloped border around the tress is an unknown piece of textured card stock in a sort of lime green.  The trees were colored with Prisma Colored Pencils and I popped the middle one up on foam tape.  I added Glitter to the side trees and Chili Sprinkles to the middle tree along with some snow created using Liquid Applique and a Frosted Lace Stickles.  I also used some of the new Christmas Ribbon from Annabelle Stamps, a new Snowflake border punch (EK Success) and a punched out snowflake (Martha Stewart) that I added Glitter to as well.  I did some piercing around the border of the card also.  I hope you'll pop on over to the DT blog's and leave them a nice comment on their awesome cards.  Then be sure to give this sketch a try.  You now have a month to work on your card and link back on the Annabelle Blog.  As always there is a Prize up for grabs so why not join in on the fun.
