Christmas Tree with Bling

Hi there everyone. Happy Sunday!

Just a quick post from me today to share with you a card that we will make on Thursday's card making class.

I went with very non-traditional colours as one of the ladies really likes pink so I am hoping she will love this card. Keeping it very CAS also allows the pink to dominate the card but not overpower it.

Here is my card -

I have seen a few of these folded Christmas Trees on Pinterest and thought I would give it a go. They are very easy to make. You start by cutting out a circle, cut it in half and then fold it to create the tree shape. 

The DSP I have used on my card is retired but I still like it! The sentiment was inked with Rose Red and is from my Express Yourself set. 

I die cut the star (out of silver glimmer paper) and banner using the dies that are included with the new Thinlits Circle Card dies. I didn't have any 'Christmas' sentiments that would fit into this banner so I adapted. I think 'Celebrate' is most appropriate.

The finishing touch was stickles on the tree.

I would love to enter this card into the following challenges -
