The tree itself is so beautiful that you don't really need much else on the card. I've covered the tree in fine glitter and sparkles like crazy. Tried everything to capture it's sparkle but finally had to admit defeat!! Anyway, quite a simple design. Black Tudor Acetate from Handy Hippo over the white card blank. Then a piece of Sherbet Pips Flittered Card which has polka dots of glitter.
Then I've stuck the tree onto black card, leaving some of the leaves unglued to add dimension. Mounted this with 3d foam pads to give height and added a Sentiment from Pink Petticoat.
And that's it! Hope you like it!! I do struggle with CAS cards but I am starting to quite like them.
Reading the Less is More rules, I'm not sure now whether this has enough white space!?? Does the white under the acetate count? Oh dear!! maybe I haven't got the hang of them after all LOL!!! Apologies if it doesn't qualify!!

Ah well, I think Winter is really here now. It feels cold today here in Manchester. Got my Snuggle over my legs because they are aching like mad. Going to get a cup of Cocoa now and a piece of Pecan and Maple Syrup Cake that my daughter has made. Mmmmm - it's delicious!!!
I am back tomorrow with my DT Card and using yet another colour combo that I've not used for a while. Ooh I will be getting Red and Green withdrawal LOL
