"Charlie Brown" Christmas Card

Merry Christmas, Charlie Brown!!

Anyone else forced to watch that over and over, year after year?? I have to admit that I think it's an adorable movie, and I love the moral of the story.

Any hoo, I was going through the stamps Terri left my mom and I found this Christmas tree. I immediately knew what I wanted to create first. This card...

The card base is Kraft, the layer is Real Red, and I stamped my image with Memento Tuxedo Black ink on Neenah white cardstock. For the bow I tied embroidery thread in a bow. This is representing my Lucky Limeade.  I used the Colour Q's color challenge (link below), and added a little sparkle with Real Red, Bermuda Bay, and (Lawn Fawn) Cool Caribbean sequins. I love the touch of fancy on an otherwise very sad tree.

Thanks for looking! I hope this finds you happy and healthy.
