Christmas Tree Joy

Good Morning Everyone!

I'm here to share my card for yesterday's Mojo Monday sketch. I decided to make a Christmas card. I'm not sure why it is, I seem to be on a Christmas card kick already which means I'll probably be completely over them by the time Thanksgiving rolls around! LOL. Anyhow, for this card I used Simply Chartreuse, Aqua Mist, and Ruby Red along with pattern papers from The Season's Greeting 6x6 paper pad from Echo Park.
I stamped and embossed the Tree from Inkadinkado on white card stock with Peeled Paint Distress Ink and clear embossing powder. I used my blending tool with Antique Linen, Vintage Photo, Crushed Olive and Fired Brick Red Distress inks to create the background for the image. I used a blender pen with Peeled Paint, Broken China and Fired Brick Red to add the color to the tree. The Circle and "Joy" Sentiment are from Verve's "Tag Time" set. I used some ribbon and button with the twine to secure the tag. I added some gold stickles and some red stickles to the scalloped edges on the left side; and then the gold brads at the top corner to complete the card.

Only one other challenge for this card:
