House Mouse Pinecone Christmas Tree

Today's card is another Christmas one made using my new Chameleon colored pencils and scraps of cardstock from my stash. I will be entering it @ House-Mouse and Friends for "Anything Christmas", @ (PIN)spirational Challenges for "#206", @ The Holly and Ivy Challenge for "Anything Christmas Goes", @ Words 2 Craft By for "Christmas" and @ the Sisterhood of Crafters for "All About Christmas". 

On the inside, I tapped gold Delicata ink through a wreath stencil and then stamped the sentiment over top of it in a crisp black ink.

I love the subtle texture that the gold glitter paper and the holly embossing folder provided on the front of this 5" x 7" card!

That's it for me today -time to wrap some presents! Until next time~
