O' Christmas Tree.

Happy Monday everyone! Another Monday... Oh how the weekend just flies by!! Back to work.. already looking forward to Thursday LOL!!  I feel really good about the weekend though... I was able to get the store front all set up and I even got some coloring done. I need to finish up my coloring and get some cards made now, but its a start ;)  Here is another card from my stack that I was working on coloring up:

I used a sketch from The Sweetest Thing, but I didn't get this posted in time to join in. It was a great sketch for this card though. The papers are from Bo Bunny. The Christmas tree is from Meljen's Designs - Christmas Tree. I had fun coloring this one up with my Prismacolor Pencils and Gamsol. The ribbon is from my stash.. I've probably had that ribbon about 3 years LOL!!! I added some stickles to the star and the silver balls. I also added some Diamond Glaze to the lights and the silver balls. I used 3D paint, gold for the beads around the tree. Such a fun image! I decoupaged each layer of the tree. I layed down the upper part of each level and then popped the bottom part. I think it really gave it a great look. I tried to get some photos that would show it. I popped a couple of the front gifts as well.
