Trim The Tree

Good Morning.
Its Friday and challenge time at Daring Cardmakers.
Hope our little festive countdown is helping you get ahead with your Christmas creations and providing you with lots of ideas.
This weeks challenge is called
We would like to see a forest of trees, perhaps just one or two, a Christmas tree or any other type of tree on your card.
I created a forest.
I treated myself to this lovely set from Stampin Up called Carols Of Christmas.
I started with a square of white card stock and created my background using different shades of blue ink blended together to create the sky.
I then die cut the moon and stars and places some silver glitter card behind.

I then die cut the trees from white and silver card stock and glued them together slightly off set to create a drop shadow.  I seem to be doing this a lot lately but I love it.

I then cut out some of the cute reindeer from kraft card stock and added them to the front.
I haven't added a greeting as I thought it would also be good for perhaps a winter birthday.  But to be honest I was scared of messing it up after I created the background.
I hope you can stop by the Design Team blogs at Daring Cardmakers for more lovely inspiration.
Have a lovely weekend and thanks for stopping by.
