T is for Trees

Several trees were stamped with Chipped Sapphire in first, second

Hello, thanks for your visit. Today at Sparkles Christmas Challenges
we begin our new challenge, out last for 2017.  Considering the amount
of snowfall over many parts of the UK, including the area where I live, it seems apt
that our challenge for December is Snowman/men, only one or many, you choose.
Please be sure to visit the blog, to see ther rules and of course
the amazing and interesting inspiration from the fabulous design team.
I apologise for the poor light of my card, I do live in the North of England,
and we don't enjoy a lot of  bright daylight.
My card is 7" square. To the left is an embossed panel of snowflakes,
I used an embossing folder. Two strips of pale blue glitter card, the
sentiment is a die, using the same glitter card.
The stamp of cheeky snowmen is a Woodware stamp, coloured with 
Promarkers. Glitter here and there and a sprinkling of crystal gems.
