Plum Christmas

Hi everyone, happy Wednesday!
I haven't posted in a while, I've been helping my mom pack for her move, and I'm happy to say that she's all cozied up in her new place~ YEA!!!! Halloween was fun~ I have no pics to share because I still have not purchased a new camera. Olivia was a witch and Brandon was... well- he was a bloody skull head in a cape if you can picture that, and now there is way too much candy in this house!!
Anyway, I've been trying to catch up on my challenges this week and I have today's SCS sketch challenge to share with you. The sketch is great, I flipped it upside down because of the sizes of my panels, and I used the colors from today's Color Throwdown Challenge which are Pale Plum, Choc. Chip, and Old Olive. I'm trying to get my Christmas cards done so I pulled out my Fun and Fast Notes' Christmas tree and stamped it twice on Old Olive cs and once on white cs. I cut out both Olive 'trees only', and adhered one image to the white image. I added some Stickles, white gel pen and red marker fancies to the second 'Olive' tree and adhered that over the first image with dimensionals. I colored the star and tree trunk with markers, cut out the whole layered image and adhered it to a Pale Plum oval panel matted with a larger Choc. Chip oval. I stamped my sentiment in black Archival ink on Olive cs and punched it out with an oval punch. I inked the edges and added dots. The top three panels are embossed with a Fiskars texture plate and matted with Choc. Chip cs.
Really fun card! What do you think?
