Old English Sheepdog Christmas Card Joan's Challenge

Good Evening Ladies,
Slowly getting ready for Christmas. Today I went to get lights for my new tree. I decided my old m&m guy lights are to heavy for the new skinny tree. So we went out to get new smaller lights. Wal-Mart was our first stop. I could not believe it. Wal-Mart was out of tree lights. So off to ace I went. I found lights there on a reel. All on one string. I bought these. I will not have all those plugs going down the back of my tree this year.
Here is my card for the challenge over at http://www.atjoansgardens.com/2011/12/this-weeks-challenge.html
Old English Sheepdog Christmas Card Joan's Challenge ....
The challenge is a christmas card....anything goes.
To create this card I stamped an old english sheep dog on white cardstock and embossed it with black embossing powder. I colorized him using copic markers. He was cut out by hand. I took white glitter cardstock and covered my card. I tore two strips of white glitter cardstock to create layers of snow. Three Christmas trees were cut from green holly holographic foil paper using a spellbinder die set. They were added on to the card with the layering of the snow pieces. I added a flatback angel to the top of the largest tree. Pieces of a gold glitter holiday pick was added to each corner. In the very corners of each gold leaf piece I added rouge liquid pearls to create holly berries.
When I create my Christmas cards no two are alike. I am not one for repeat creations.
Happy Scraps,
Mrs. Swandog
