ABC Christmas Challenge - L is for...

I have another card for our current ABC Christmas Challenge for you today, where the theme is:

'L for Lyrics'
We want to see Christmas projects inspired by the words of a Christmas carol/song.

We have two fabulous sponsors for this challenge:

Prize - a $15 voucher to spend at Simon Says Stamp


Prize - 2 digis from the Saturated Canary store

This time, I've been inspired by the song 'O Christmas Tree'...and this stunning card by my lovely friend Pauline. I used a Penny Black stamp called 'Before the Snow', stamping it in 'Chipped Saphire' Distress Ink (a la Pauline) get the illusion of the trees behind, I simply stamped again without re-inking. I glittered the two trees at the 'front' using Glamour Dust...which you can just about see - it was a nightmare to photograph!...and a sentiment by Paper Make-Up.

I'm also entering this card into the following challenges:
For more inspiration from my lovely DT buddies, pop over to the ABC Christmas Challenge.

Woo hoo!! Helen I love this and thanks so much for the mention :-) Interestingly I spotted it in your sidebar first and thought ooh I love this - must go find it on your blog ... and the reason is your frosting is somehow different from my card and I think you can see it better on your card, so it makes the trees look more dimensional - love it!! You know when I first won this stamp I didn't think I liked it but now I really do, so I intend to have a good go with it this year :-)
