Christmas Tree Wishes

 Beautiful Christmas tree of words from Papertrey Ink!

This is the final card ... after trying 9 different backgrounds! Just love this embossing folder ... All Star Burst from Simon Says Stamp.

Here are the 9 different backgrounds I was trying ... started with vellum - but thought it got a bit lost on it, the red die cut stars - too dark!, gold die cut stars - too similar to the tree ... and on it went.

I added Nuvo Glitter Gloss to the stars on the embossing folder, and glossy accents to the star at the top of the tree.

Merry Christmas wishes to you ...

    A silent night,

        a start above,

            a blessed gift of hope and love.

A blessed Christmas to you.
