Swirly Christmas Tree...Freshly Made Sketches 111, Annabelle Stamps Christmas Challenge

One more quick post...

A few days back, Andrea over at AnnaBelle Stamps invited us to grab our favourite AnnaBelle Christmas stamp and get stamping. I have some beautiful AB productschoosing one was soooo hard, but I did, for this card, anyway.  Invitation extended = invitation accepted. 

Here's my Swirly Tree, using the Freshly Made Sketches 111 (quite loving this sketch, too...)


Hmmm...I just glanced at my other AB stamps...may have to play again  :-)

Thanks for your visit and comments;  you've made my day!

Wow, girl! You are on a roll with cards! This is exceptional. LOVE that tree. Paired with the gold, you've made this so festive. Have been having bouts of YKWs again, but have at least been looking....More comments coming, I promise. Great card. Bev

Okay, so is this tree stamped or embossed or a diecut.....I really HAVE to know because this is beyond stunning Carol! The gold snowflake and the gold 'decorations' on the tree are the pizzaziest Chrismtas bling ever! The sentiment sits so nice and quietly in the corner, spreading its greetings of the season without distracting from the beautiful elements on the card! Beautiful!
