Lovely as a Tree

Just to show that I did actually get something done today!! I know this type of card has been around for years but I still love the idea and the layout and have no idea who first used this set like this. Lovely As A Tree is still one of my favourites and always will be I think and it is amazing to think how long it has been in the Stampin' Up ! catalogue.

The trees are white embossed and the card has been sponged with various colours of Stampin' Up! blues The wording comes from the set Many Merry Messages - an excellent set for Christmas greetings. The silver cord is retired from SU which is a pity.

I might add a bit of Dazzling Diamonds here and there for a bit of sparkle.
