Distressed Christmas Tree

I am back with my final Christmas card for you.  I used the Couture Creations embossing folder again, I cut the tree out and did some distressing with Tim Holtz Distress ink, added some crystals, a star and Ribbon and of course paired it with some paper from Atuthentique.  Out of all the cards I made for Christmas I like this one best, my hubby says it is "not me" but I love it!

Friendship


Welcome to our Faithful friends blog hop brought to you by the design team at From The Heart Stamps.  Our design team has been hard at work creating some gorgeous creations for your viewing pleasure.  If you arrived here from Michelle's blog you are on the right track if not head back to the beginning and start over.  For my card I am using "Friendship", I colored with copics and my paper is from DCWV and Crate Paper.  I had my card all ready to assemble and was getting my cuttlebug out to die cut some flowers and my bug is broken with the plates stuck in it!  Good thing I had some matching flower in my stash that would work.
Leave us some love along the way and you might be the lucky winner of an image of your choice, each DT member is going to pick a commenter from their blog.  One commenter from the FTHS blog will win a $15 voucher to the From The Heart Stamps Store.  The last stop is at the From The Heart Stamps Blog- make sure you leave some love so you are entered into the draw for the gift voucher! 
Thanks for hopping with us today. The hop will end on Monday November 10th, 6 am EST. Winners will be posted on the From the Heart Stamps Blog on Wednesday November 12th.
