*SweetStamps #145: The Holidays

Good morning sweeties!!
Today, is another start of challenge week at SweetStamps.
This weeks theme is: 
The Holidays
I just adore the fancy look of silver, white and bling!!
It really gives a card a true feeling of elegance and sophistication!!
I am using some gorgeous paper by Anna Griffin: Winter Wonderland
The Christmas tree and sentiment were stamped and embossed in silver.   The Christmas tree is layered with a stick pin star added to the top. In addition, you can see all the frosted bling that was to the tree for added interest.  Along with the cheesecloth, I also added a piece of lace ribbon to the bottom of the tree. 

So, I hope you have enjoyed my project today and will find inspiration to join us this week.
