Country Merry Christmas Tree Card:


This stamp was the one I originally chose to post for the star challenge.  I wanted to color it with my new copic sketch markers. The other day I just couldn't pull the color scheme together so I ended up using a jar with stars in it.  I love the Dear Lizzy line, so I was very happy with it.
It was so much fun using the colorless blender pen all over the stamped image. 
 
  
I am also posting this to the Simon Says Stamp Challenge for using their featured Exclusive line stamps.   I have used the super fun Mini Folded Banners Holiday die and Stamp set
 

 
This simple un decorated tree in a watering can reminded me of my sister. 
My sister is the constant gardener.  This is something I might see on her front porch, or I would see in a quaint little county nursery and want to give her as a gift.
 
 
The close up, I love the folded banners!
