Dress Up Those Trees!

Here's my card for the "Dress Up Those Trees" challenge at Saturday Spotlight With Hidden Potential.

Seeing how we are celebrating Thanksgiving this weekend I thought I'd create a "thankful for" card. This card will go on my table and just before the meal is served we will all write, on the inside of the card, what we are most thankful for. Hmmm, this could become a family tradition!

The left side of the card is embossed with the D'vine Swirls embossing folder, then inked. The paper on the right side is from Deja Views Home For the Holidays collection. The tree stamp is from imaginisce and the sentiment stamp is from inque boutique.

Now the BEST part. I decorated my tree with STICKLES to create some gorgeous fall leaves! I am So addicted to those little bottles of glittery glue! If you haven't tried them yet, be sure to pick up a bottle soon and give them a whirl. You too, will be addicted!

Happy Thanksgiving.
