25 Days of Christmas cards: Day 16, Sparkly Tree

Hello everyone!

Today's card is one that I look at and I think, 'hmmm...I'm not sure I like this." And then I look at it a while later, and I think, "actually it turned out pretty cool." This card was really simple to put together once I figured out the layou of the circle to make the tree. I just cut a bunch of random sized circles from some super sparkly paper I bought from Hobby Lobby. I layered them onto a piece of white card stock and then attached it to a Neenah Desert Storm card base.
I wrestled a bit with whether or not to put a sentiment on the front and decided that the sparkly tree was best by itself. I think that if I had to do it again, I would probably not use the white glitter paper and just kept it all red, green and gold. The white gets a little hard to see and so it looks like there are these big gaps in the tree.

I hope you all have a fabulous day. Thanks for stopping by to visit with me.
