Happy Holidays

Hi there, I don't normally find time to create a card just for fun but with my DD and grandkids away this past 10 days- (holidaying in Phuket) I have found myself  having more spare time to spend  in the craft room...

I just love the combination of Evergreen Bough and Iced Spruce Distress Inks..great Christmas Colours.
 My background was created using  Iced Spruce,Acrylic block and water, a technique I do quite often to make my own background paper. Evergreen Bough was used as my backing paper. 
I saw a similar tree on a card at my local new agency so wondered if I could create one..
When looking thru my stash of stamps I found I had no basic tree trunk stamp- I know I'm surprised too-- for  those of you who know my stamp collection., lol...So I made my own cutting a piece off  an acrylic stamp that had extra around it and cut it into a shape of a trunk and stamped with Black Versafine Ink. 
The little stamped circles used to form my tree came from a Neat and Tangled Stamp set called Party Dots... this stamp set is soooo well used., a Memory Box Die for my Star, Sequins and Gems and a little Copic Colouring along with a little strip of silver glitter paper finished it off... 
I am entering this card into a new Stamp Company I have just found  (love the stamps) and Challenge Blog called..
