Oh' Christmas Tree

Good Morning all,

Today I am sharing a Christmas card I made for the new One Stitch At A Time Challenge #225 "Anything Goes with Lace".
During this time of year we all get so busy with shopping, decorating and if you have kids school stuff. Right?  Well sometimes it's nice just to take a break, breathe and take in the fresh crisp air, look around and see the wonder in the beautiful season. See the beautiful colors, decorations and smiling faces from kids and adults around you. : )  As I was out this weekend I took a look around and yes, even though it's a rush during this time of year, I saw the magic of Christmas everywhere. It was just breathtaking, I hope you get a chance to do this, totally an awesome feeling. If you do have this happen please write something in the comment section, I would love to read it. :D

For this Challenge #225  I chose a digital stamp by RSP (Reeces Scrap Pieces) - My Christams, this is a wonderful stamp set that contains 9 fun Christmas images to decorate cards or scrapbook pages.
Our sponsor is  
The Prize is November Prize Pack

Well here is one of my Christmas Cards -

I placed lace around the design paper and then embossed the gold cs. 
Fussy cut the tree and placed on top of the gold embossed cs.
Used Prima Red Crystals in the corners and TH crystal stickles on the
star, red bows and baubles. 

For the inside of the card I used the same design paper & gold cs used on the 
front of the card. I cut 4 corners from a paper doily and glued to the corners of the
red cs for a finished look.
