A sparkling Christmas

Hello to you all I am sharing a Christmas card today using some Clarity Trees.....

( I know  but it is September and it will soon be  Christmas)....

I made my background by tearing some paper to resemble hills and used as a mask. I have used Weathered Wood distress ink for the entire card even stamped the trees with it....The sentiment has been die cut out of card that I coloured with Weathered Wood Distress ink,I then went around the letters with white pen to make it more 3D,I finished off by glittering the trees to make them look frosty.xxx
