Wrapped up in sparkle

I used this image for a Christmas card once before, but I thought it would work well with these evergreen tree die-cuts I got as an RAK. It seemed like a good project to start the Christmas card stash for 2015.

The stamp is from Clear Art Stamps, colored in pencils.  I added superfine white glitter to the trees on the image as well as to the die-cut trees.  The bigger one is popped up in the foreground and adds some dimension that isn't showing well on my photo.

This is my entry for this year's first round of Rudolph Days, which has moved to Scrappymo's blog for 2015.

I'm playing in these challenges:

Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge -- winter stamping
The Paper Shelter #187 -- all wrapped up  (the woman is wrapped up in quite a coat)
Rudolph Days, Jan 2015 -- Christmas
Holly Jolly Christmas -- Lots of Sparkle
Crazyhazelnut's Christmas Extra -- anything Christmas
Word Art Wednesday #167 -- anything goes
