Stampin' Up! Lovely as a Tree and I create a Christmas Card

I'm back, and I have a Christmas card to show you!
I started this card with the circle, cut with my Circle Scissors, stamped the tree line using Staz On and the Lovely as a Tree stamp, I then got my brayer out (which I'm slowly making friends with), and brayered Pool Party ink, followed by Island Indigo and Night of Navy. When that was done, I got my VersaMarker out, and used it to add 'snow' to the ground with white embossing powder. I then layered the circle onto a piece of Pool Party, stamped the sentiment from Snow Swirled and added Basic Rhinestones in the corners. I set that aside and moved onto my card base. I cut a Whisper White card base, and layered it with some Night of Navy card which I had run through the Bigshot with the Square Lattice embossing folder. I wrapped some Island Indigo Ruffled Ribbon around the Night of Navy, and tied a knot, before mounting the image panel using Dimensionals. 
I am entering this into the Stamping 411 Sketch challenge, as it has been quite a while since I've entered one of their challenges :)
Thanks for dropping in, 
Happy Stamping :)

I love when you can add dimension to a card, without adding layers of paper. Layering your ink is an AWESOME way to add a TON of dimension. I love how it looks like a snow globe on the face of your card and fits perfectly with the sketch this week! Thanks for playing along with stamping 411 this week.
