Trimming the Tree

Bargains galore on this one, it's those £2 Tulip papers again along with a mag freebie stamp!
 The image has been coloured with Promarkers (of course!) and then highlighted with Stickles in Yellow, Christmas Red and Star Dust.  I couldn't resist decorating the tree with some gems for baubles and adding some shiny red berries to the holly, well, if Christmas isn't the time for a bit of bling when is?!
I kept the layout quite simple adding a bit of interest with a punched holly border, done with a Martha Stewart punch along with some bright red ribbon, a bow and some red gems and pearls.  A sentiment stamped with a Papermania stamp finished it it off.
