a card and an ATC for sharing

Hi, there,
 Today, I'd like to share you a card which I rushed to make and already sent it to one of my friends yesterday. I used a paper piecing technique for the retro trees.

Here is the card.

And this is an ATC that I made after finishing my first card posted here on Dec.15.

 I liked the combination of the girl holding the big ornament and the winter tree, so I made a few card last year. This year, I made to use Music Background with it.

 The Music Background stamp by Hero Arts was omitted from my shopping list at first. 'Cos I already had a few similar stamps when it released, and I had actual music scores that I could digitize easily. BUT, while looking at so many beautiful works using it at Flickr HA group pool, I decided to order. Do you have it in your drawer? You are to blame! ;) But this is really a good purchase. It's one of my favorite. :)

Stamp used:
American Art Stamp: Robin Pickens Retro trees, Karen Stolper Stick Chick
Hero Arts: Winter Tree / H5244, Music Background / CG222, Poly Clear Holiday Sayings / CL343

Other supplies:
Bazzill CS, Basic Grey PP(left over)
Tsukineko Versa Fine / Onyx Black, Memento / Tuxedo Black
Ranger Distress Ink / Tumbled Glass, Stickles and Distress Stickles/ several
HA shadow Ink / Soft Pool, Felt Snowflake, button,
Faber-Castell / watercolor pencils (aquarelle and Albrecht Durer etc), Design Memory Craft /several painting tools

Thanks for stopping by!
Have a wonderful week!!
