Lovely as a Tree

I'm scraping in under the wire with this week's Dynamic Duos color challenge!  I've paired it with this week's Freshly Made Sketch challenge as well.

For my card, I did some very basic masking and sponging with Regal Rose and Basic Gray before stamping the trees in Basic Black. The DSP comes from a really old DSP pack, which I think was a hostess gift a few years ago.


I had to take the photo under artificial lighting tonight, so apologies for the quality.  It's not often I stamp at night as I'm generally not in the mood after a day of work, but I didn't want to miss the color challenge, so needs must!

Here are the challenge details:



Thanks for looking.

Products used (all Stampin' Up! unless otherwise noted):

Stamps:  Lovely as a Tree; Perfectly Penned
Cardstock:  Basic Gray; Whisper White; Patterns II DSP
Ink:  Regal Rose; Basic Gray; Versamark; Basic Black
Accessories:  Sponges; Circle Nestabilities; White Taffeta Ribbon; Pearls; White EP

Cheers
Karren
