  2. So pretty! Love that tree die cut, and that is really neat acetate with the snow in it, looks great! Thanks for sharing with us at Double Trouble!

  3. What a great joy/hope/peace tree die and already decorate with hearts... and adhered in a beautiful die cut frame... perfect. The golden snowfall acetate is a must for me because it has the splattering of ink already. Pretty layering of borders and like the cuts of poinsettias. Beautiful card... perfection. Thanks for sharing with us at Double Trouble and Jingle Belles.

  4. Forgot to mention in my previous comment... you have already met requirement with our partner for this challenge (Jingle Belles "Stars and Stripes Forever") as long as you use stars, and or strips, or both. Please join them at Hope to see you there for additional chances at random draws.

  5. Very pretty - love that white detail frame. Thanks for sharing with us at Double Trouble :)

  6. I love that cool starry tree ... so very glad you joined us with your Stars and/or Stripes at Jingle Belles.

  7. Such a pretty card and the perfect use of those stars! So happy you could join our Jingle Belles Stars & Stripes fun as we team up with the Double Trouble Challenge!
