Outline trees

CR00534 square

The first of my cards using my latest acquisition of Christmas stamps from Visible Image. I was originally going to use the background panels on their own, but the colours I picked for the ink and embossing powder layers didn’t work as nicely as I’d hoped, so I used them as the base for the outline fir trees instead and added a strip of ribbon behind them.
