Oh, Christmas Tree

Morning All.
Isn't it chilly today? Is winter about to set in? About time I tried to get the heating fixed!!!!
I thought I would show you the first card I have made ready for my 'Sparkling Snowflakes' class next week. I must confess my mojo has gone into hibernation and I am struggling for inspiration at the moment - but hey, I'm sure it will all be OK on the day :o)
The backing was embossed using my trusty Cuttlebug folder, then cut into strips. The snowflake Christmas tree stamp is a new release from Kars, and was a bit of a bargain at £1.25, which I have just highlighted with some tiny gems. The snowflakes were made by layerng up an assortment of punched shapes.
I hope you like.
I'm entering this card into the following challenges, then I'm off to try and come up with some more frosty creations.
Papertake Weekly - 3 of a kind
Allsorts - inspiration from a song title - Oh Christmas Tree
Pile It On - things in threes
Creative Craft World - Lou's monochrome challenge
See you soon,
Hugs Sharon xx
