Wee and Christmastree with sparkle!

I made this easel card for both the "Sparkle!!" challenge over at the Whiff of Joy Challenge Blog and Sketch 82 over at Friday Sketchers. Here is the sketch from Friday Sketchers:

I used the adorable Wee and Christmastree stamp from Whiff of Joy Stamps once again!

I distressed the edges of all the paper pieces and traced the piece that has the stamped image with some Golden Rod Stickles. The little red flower was originally ivory... I colored it with some distress inks to make the color as close to the reds around it as possible. I covered the flowers with Golden Rod Stickles as well.

BIG thanks to the sweetest Kiara for the holiday sentiment stamp set that she sent me!!! I got a HUGE box of goodies from her the other day and boy, I was a very happy girl!! It was like an early Christmas present to me and I still can't stop smiling... =) Thank you so much Kiara! Love ya, girl!! =)

Thanks for stopping by!
