Christmas tree

In the real world, a Christmas tree needs to come in first before the lights can be taken out of the storage. But in my card world, Edwin was struggling with the lights yesterday while Tilda is carrying the Christmas tree so effortlessly today :) Oh well.....after all it is my world, I can turn it topsy-turvy if I want to, can't I ?

The card today is based of one of my favorite color combinations and lucky me, it works wonders with a Christmas themed card

 I had so much fun coloring the stamped image, I wonder if I overdid it.
The background paper is from a Recollections stack I think and the edges are distressed with a Tim Holtz distressing ink. The big snowflake/star is a Spellbinder die.

The trees as well as the lamp post is hand-drawn. I should get around to ordering some new die-cuts, so much easier that way.

 The inside is lined with the same paper and distressed. I added some ribbon and another snowflakeat the corner.
