Christmas Tree from the Lodge

I've been making some Christmas cards using the Christmas tree from the Christmas Lodge stamp set from Stampin Up.  I love the tree, just as I love the stamp set "Lovely as a Tree".  It's funny how you can have a stamp set and use it a couple times, and then later, just love it.  Well, here's a card that I made using the "tree".

You want to know something about this card?  Can't believe I'm sharing this .. but this started out to be a "prototype", as I was practicing with the background and sponge daubing the sky.  I quickly stamped the tree onto to the card, then added the bird and some cherry cobbler dazzling details, then added some glitter and liked it.  I used the "textured" white paper because I didn't intend to use it, but ended up liking it, so I added some card stock for matting and whola!  Hey, not bad, huh?   So you never know if the prototype will turn out to be the "real deal" or not.  Hope you like it, and I look forward to seeing you again tomorrow.

Ciao for now!
