ATCAS59 - Green Christmas


This card is for Addicted to CAS's green challenge.



I know it's spring, but somehow my thoughts turned to Christmas. I was inspired by Shona's triangle Christmas card here:



Instead of die cuts, I sponged and stamped. My triangle mask used a Spellbinders triangle die.  I sponged the tree in Shabby Shutters, Mowed Lawn and Evergreen Boughs. The sentiment comes from W Plus 9's Hand Lettered Holiday set, stamped in Versafine Onyx. I topped my tree with one of my blingy Michael's embellishments.

ETA - I've also linked up to One-Layer Christmas Card challenge - Anything Goes.
