CAS Squirly Tree

Now here's a Christmas card that for once has not been made for the 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown challenge - this time it's for  St Lukes Charity Cards Challenge where they are asking for Simple Christmas this month.  This card started out as something completely different when I stamped the green frame by using my Lucky Limeade ink pad as a stamp.  This has been the technique which I've been messing around with today, I just love it's simplicity and yummy texture.
Then, I came by this gorgeous Christmas Tree stamp, quite by surprise when I went round to a friend's house and she was having a clear out.  Wasn't I in luck? I double heat embossed it in gold and then added a few bits of red bling.  Done, one CAS Christmas card, I am rather pleased with it!
