A Different Sort of Christmas Tree

This is my make from our Monday night craft session, this week we all played with Flower Soft, and I decided to add a Christmas card to my very small pile, I really do need to get a move on with them.  The stamp is Penny Black, I borrowed it from my Mum, it works well done in just about any colour, but I do rather like it as an unusual Christmas tree, heat embossed with silver powder, then embellished with Polar White Flower Soft.  For a touch of festive sparkle, I added a border of Star Dust Stickles to the edge of the topper.
 For the bottom layer, I stamped and heat embossed holly with white powder, using a Papermania Urban stamp, then for the next layer, I used an embossing folder to add a design to my paper.
To embellish, I added a Craftwork Cards sentiment, clear gems, die cut tags, and some pearls.
