Merry Monday #84

Hi there

I've just managed to scrape into this week's Merry Monday #84 challenge of Trees with Bling. I definitely have the trees covered and I've added a touch of bling to the inside.

I've made this card for friends in Germany who will be having a snowy Christmas.  They live in an area that backs onto a large park where the deer wander free, so  I thought this was very appropriate.

I've kept the inside very simple with some more trees and a strip of silver glimmer paper to represent the snow.

 This card is a custom size to fit my design, so I have taken the opportunity to make a custom envelope for it with the Envelope Punch Board and some retired 'Winterfrost' DSP that has Always Artichoke as one of the main colours.  It is not a colour we have seen recently in DSP. I love how quick and easy this is now, with this tool.
