Sparkling Tree

I was going to post this first thing this morning but I just couldn't get a decent photo - I had to wait until I was at work to get some decent light! As you can see out of my office window we have had snow which doesn't help with the strange light it produces.

I'm now a bit fed up of Christmas cards but that's probably because I've made nearly a hundred! As you can see by the layout of this one my mojo has nearly gone! All my inspiration came from the photo on the current challenge at Crafty Cardmakers:

The clean and simple style also suits this week's challenge at CASology - use 'sparkle' as your inspiration. In the right light the gems and the mirri card are totally sparkle-tastic!

Another of my fave challenges - Moving Along With The Times also has 'clean and simple' as this week's theme so I've entered it in that aswell.

The tree is a glittery peeloff and I've covered it in turquoise gem 'baubles'. The matting is some lovely shiny mirri paper I found in my local tat shop. Corrugated silver card and a matching turquoise ribbon finishes off.

Thanks for looking...
