I love the effect of the two Christmas trees, you don't always have to purchase lots of stamp pads to get different shades. I first stamped the darker tree in the foreground and then without inking up again stamped the same image a little lower to make it look like this one was behind the first one.
I love the little bit of bling with the star (from the Circle Card Thinlet Die) and the scallop border. I gave a little more feature by turning up one corner with my bone folder.
