Michael Strong Challenge

Michael Strong has a Yahoo Group that I belong to- and we have a monthly challenge that I rarely get to play along with.  Well, on HIS BLOG, Michael  posted a Tree silhouette for us to use to create a card.
   I am trying to get more Christmas cards done, so had to take the challenge!  I imported the Tree Silhouette into my Make the Cut program, and cut it out in 4 different sizes. Before I cut it out, I took a number of green stamp pads and applied the ink DTP.
  I Sponged on ink to the white cardstock and added stickles. On the trees, I stippled on Creative Inspirations Fairy Dust paint. I punched out the deer from an old MS punch. The Sentiment is Sweet Stamps. The star is hand cut.

Challenges:
Michael Strong- use Tree image on a card
Bloggers Challenge- Make a Scene
Craft a Scene- Winter Scene

Thanks for stopping by!

Great card Shelly - sounds a lot of work, all that cutting, but I guess with a machine and punches it was not that bad :-) Love the glitter you incorporated.
Blessings
