Christmas card featuring three lovely trees in blue and browns

For this large card which I created using my sister's supplies I started with a dark brown card.  I added a piece of decorative paper on the top which featured circle elements and rectangle below which featured stripes.  I added a length of coordinating ribbon in between adhering it using double sided tape.  I die cut two pieces of a scallop circle using the scraps and mounted them to the back of my white circle image of three trees (Blackberry Jelly).  I glued this element in place over the ribbon using 3D foam tape and then lightly watercoloured the trees in a coordinating blue colour.  I added dots tothe outside edge of the circle as well to better define the edge.  I created an oval layered greeting using a small oval punchie stamped with a greeting, over a larger brown punchie and finally layered onto a coordinating blue scalloped oval punchie (SU).  I adhered this greeting on the lower portion of my card front using 3D foam tape.  As a final touch I added iridescent glitter glue to the tree garlands and each scallop around my tree element.
