I used a Sizzix die to cut out a grunge board tree sprayed with 2 colors of green Glimmer Mist ... laid on the background of red Glimmer Mist and stencil ... added a strip of hymnal page and jingle bells accented with the poinsettia at the base of the tree ... I did just a little shadow work on the edges of the page with the negative of the tree grunge board cut out .... stamped Merry Christmas with Versa Mark then embossed with fine gold embossing powder
This is a pure joy to make .... it's a tip-in instead of a Christmas Card ... I used red Glimmer Mist for the background with a stencil and 3 greens sprayed over each other for the tag .... then took a page from my hymnal and crumpled it and used distressed linen inkpad to do direct to paper on the high spots then over that I used metalic gold inkpad to do some of the high spots, heat set that ... used ARTchix German scrap wings behind my lovely image and embellished with fabric poinsettes and ribbon then added just a little bling ....

As everyone else sleeps in, I did some ATC's and a Thank You card .... to me the best part of the day is morning having a cup of coffee watch the sunrise and create some art ........ what could be better than that ........ click to enlarge
At the retreat I was also able to make the box for my Circus Book from a swap that took place last year ...... I also decided to make some ATC size clown cabinet cards and a holder to go into the box also ....... click to enlarge
