The Christmas Sisters

Papertrey is having their Make it Monday #34 chipboard accents challenge.  Erin Lincoln was the lovely host.  I started with Graphic 45 designer paper and always artichoke.  The tree, both snowflakes are a die from Papertrey.  I stamped the large snowflake using background basics text style and love lives here holiday.  As I was layering the snowflakes I gently brushed on close to cocoa ink, also brushing it over the top of the christmas tree and the papers underneath.  On the top of the snowflake I used pearls and a button.  I highlighted the tree with glitter around the edges.  The seam binding bow is highlighted with close to cocoa ink and I added a decorative pin. 
 Here you can see that I used six layers of cereal boxes with the tree die cut from Papertrey.  Spraying each layer with adhesive.
I decided to take a few pictures in different lighting.  The top picture is with a light bulb, the next two is in the sunlight.  Have a great day.
