Charlie Brown tree

I saw a bunch of cute little stick tree cards recently and decided to try one on my own. Turns out the ones I've seen on the Internet are actually a die cut, but I made mine with glitter and double-sided tape.  I just cut a strip of brown card stock and adhered it to the paper. Then I added strips of adhesive in a vaguely treelike shape and covered them with glitter. I figure it doesn't matter if the branches aren't straight. This was quick and easy and I think it makes for a fun tree, kind of reminiscent of a Charlie Brown tree. You could also do it with strips of paper or fiber instead of glitter.

To complete my tree, I added a button snowflake on top.  I used Feeling Sketchy #73 for the layout.

The sentiment is black-embossed and comes from Hero Arts.

I am entering this card in the following challenges:
