Merriest Wishes

Holiday card made for CAS Colours and Sketches 154 Challenge which was to use any sketch from their 2015 Challenges.  I chose #147 for my entry.  First I used a mask over the card base to color and stamp the tree on the left.  Then I masked the first tree with masking paper and scooted the tree over to the right to color and stamp the second tree to make it look as though it was behind the first tree.  Sentiment is Hero Arts and left tree floral is also Hero Arts.  Tree on right was stamped with tiny stamp from My Favorite Things Handlettered Holiday.  Used distress inks in green and red for trees and distress ink applicator. Cards base is Kraft and thin black strips are cardstock also.  Clear tiny sequins are from Pretty Pink Posh.
