Reminder post for CCAYR!

Hello bloggy friends!  I would say "happy Monday," but I don't see much that's happy about any Monday!  LOL!  It is nice and sunny and warm out, so that's a good thing.  

Anyway, here is my card for the CCAYR reminder post for our "Tree" challenge:

I had been wanting to make one of these snowflake trees for a long time now, so this challenge seemed like the perfect opportunity.  I have a zippered sandwich bag full of snowflake punches in my stash, and that's where these came from.  If you happen to enlarge the picture, you can see that I punched the snowflakes from textured card stock.  The blings in the middle of the snowflakes are from love, Nicole, which you can get at A. C. Moore.  I love the textured look of these!!  I didn't want to do much else to the card, to let the snowflake tree be the star.  I blended Broken China Distress Oxide ink around the edges of my card base before adhering the panel.  I also used it to stamp the Lawn Fawn sentiment, using my MISTI to ensure great ink coverage.


Happy Little Stampers Christmas:  ATG or optional "Santa" theme
CHNC #394:  ATG or optional "use a punch or die" theme
