Cute Card Thursday #142 - Floral Frenzy

Happy Thursday!

Today, the challenge at Cute Card Thursday is Floral Frenzy! Right up my alley as I love to use flowers on my cards. For my card, I used the sketch from Friday Sketchers. Here is the sketch...

and here is my card...

Stamps: Secret Tilda
Paper: Signature Christmas (My Mind's Eye)
Accessories: Spellbinders Scalloped Edge Frame, Stickles, Fun Flock, Glitter, Button 

I used a flock/glitter combination over the Christmas tree to create a cool, winter scene. 

I colored Tilda with a combination of Copics and Distress Inks.  I used white flowers to give the feel of mounds of snow.

I dry embossed the sections of tree to give it some dimension, and mounted it with silicone glue.
