True Blue Forever Friend

What a weekend! Whew! Not much time for crafting, so I will have to try and pack TWO challenges into one card! (hey, 0_O is that allowed?!) Here goes:

This is for the 365 Cards : Day 140 (sketch below);
and for the Christmas Stampin All Year Round - Bling It Up! (challenge #57) ((what -- it is too Christmas-y - has Snowflakes!!)) And Voila! My Masterpiece:

It does have some glitter, besides the obvious bling: I added drops of coordinated glitter glue in the various quadrants. For the snowflakes I used a Gelly Roll glitter pen to accent the centers.

This Stamp Set is the retired Branch Out; I used Old Olive and Sahara Sand cardstock; inks were various - Rose Red, Pretty in Pink, Green Galore, Glorious Green, Old Olive, Really Rust, Real Red, Only Orange, and Bashful Blue. All Stampin Up! (you should see my craft table!! what a whirlwind!) The trees were stamped 4 times, each decorated for a season, and then I cut them on the angles and pieced them together. The sentiment is Fundamental Phrase stamp set, thought it went well with my 4-seasons approach and "a friend for all seasons" was what I meant :-). The Glitter/Bling is a bit more evident in Real Life, thanks for looking!
