A few challenges incorporated into this card:
1) The great sketch is from Card Patterns.
2) Sparkle's Christmas Card Challenge for this week is to include something from nature on your Christmas card.
3) The Practical Scrappers challenge this week is to use stamps! Not a huge 'challenge' for me since stamps have become an addiction for me & pretty much everything I do has a stamped image of some sort on it. But one fun "stamping" thing I did on this card was to take a short & straight (2") 'flourish' image and turn it into this 'curly' border around my trees. One of the great things about using acrylic stamps is that you can curve & bend them in various ways! I just kept re-shaping my stamp on the block each time I stamped it so that it followed the shape of my cardstock piece until I had a continuous border. Easy peasy!
