Peace Love Joy - Lily Pad Cards Challenge

You know...some days the stamping just rolls along.  One card after another.  Fun!  Not today though.
This is the only card I've made far.  I'm really liking this card.  But, it took SO long to create it.  Oh well, it's done!

Anyway, I know you didn't come here to listen to me whine.  Let's look at a challenge and a card instead.  Ready?  Here's the challenge from Deborah and Vicky over at Lily Pad Cards.

My card ~

I knew that I wanted to use my new Christmas tree die with some patterned paper.  So that was my starting point.  I popped up the tree on foam tape, then added the rhinestone swirl.  After stamping my sentiment on white card stock, I applied gray marker along the edges.  Then, I curled it a bit in the center before attaching it to the tree.  I finished off with a little bow of silver cord at the top of the tree.  Easy peasy, huh?  Ha!
Thanks for stopping by to take a look.  I hope you'll leave a comment!

Supplies & such ~
card stock: stampers select white (Papertrey Ink), basic gray (Stampin' Up!)
patterned paper: O Christmas Tree (My Mind's Eye)
ink: onyx black versafine (Tsukineko), basic gray (SU)
other: rhinestone flourish (Recollections from Michaels), silver cord (Hirschberg Shultz), Christmas tree die (Sizzix), pop-up dots (SU), foam tape (Scotch)
