a card for Card Patterns #37

Hi, everyone!
I've been spending busy days. BUT!!!
But today is Saturday here, and it's been about two weeks and finally enjoying my weekend holidays. I played on the internet after I came home at midnight yesterday from biz-trip.

And happened to know this sketch at Card Patterns #37 . I was so interested in it! Because I haven't ever made any card like this design.
So I started to think about a few design for the card soon. This was literary a challenge for me, and also my first attempt to send my card to Card Patterns.

Here is my result. I used Coluzzle oval template to cut the shape.

And this is a closeup view.

*Used several Perfect Pearls for the tree.
And I also submitted this to 2Peas 'SOF09 - Earth Challenge' hosted by Suzz (aka stampersuzz) on Oct 25th.

stamp used:
Stampers Anonymous / Tim Holtz stamp
Inkadinkado (sentiment)

other supplies:
American Crafts CS, Anna Griffin PP
Ranger Distress Inks / Antique Linen, Black Soot, Embossig Tinsel / Snowflake
  Perfect Pearls / Blue Smoke, Green Patina, Green, Heirloom Gold, Red, Perfect Medium
Tsukineko StazOn / Jet Black

  10. This is gorgeous, Tomo! I hope you receive my comment, I got a failure message for the last comment I wanted to leave!


  11. このカード、とても綺麗です!
    スタンプのメーカーが変われば、イメージも変わりますね。Tim Holtz氏のクールなスタンプも、色使いで随分優しい印象になるのにはびっくり!
    Tomo先輩のご趣味だから良いんだけど、そろそろ完璧なオリジナルにカムバックして欲しいかな~!(外国の方からのペーパークラフト、いや、ヒーローアーツ?カムバックコールを目にしたので、私らも便乗! 私、代表で書いてるんですけど 笑。 個人的には刺繍やレース、カードも見たいんですけどね)

  12. Such a stunning card Tomo. Your tree is incredible and love all your details.

  13. Tomo, so glad that you finally get to "play". This card is a winner! I like how you use the sketch and turn it into a Christmas card. Very unique and creative!!
    PS: don't forget to sleep.....ZZZZ
