FMS167 and City Crafter Week 242 - Christmas tree

Hello friends! 
Are  you almost ready for Christmas?
I have a couple more gifts to get yet 
and need to sit down and address 
envelopes to send my cards out.

I have two more cards to make for the season
so I chose the great sketch at Freshly Made Sketches
to help me get 'er done.

This card took me forever to make!! I thought I'd just 
whip it together but I really struggled with it.
I think it was because it was outside my normal
"cute" with lots of bright colors style.
But it is good to stretch ourselves sometimes 
and the person I had in mind for this card
is not a "cute" card person :o)

I'm also entering this card in the following challenge:
City Crafter Challenge Blog Week 242 - Christmas Color challenge

Thanks for stopping by to visit me today -
I'm sure glad that you did.

Til next time friends...hugs and merry crafting! D
