Orange You Glad It's Christmas challenge

Jingle Belles has an inspiration photo challenge going on right now.  Challenges are so much fun, especially when they take you out of your comfort zone with non-traditional colors or in this case, a color I rarely craft with...ORANGE!  Here is the inspiration photo:

I tried to copy the tree and I also tried to find a background paper similar to the trefoil pillow at the bottom of the photo.

This is not a card I would ever mass-produce; but it was fun to make and it was a great way to use up scraps.  The tree is created from a Martha Stewart branch punch (I punched 68 white branches all from white card stock scraps) and the bows are cut from a My Favorite Things Die-namics Blueprints 26 (from Bazzill scraps).  The trefoil paper is by Echo Park.  The sentiment is a Lawn Fawn stamp from "Toboggan Together".  Lastly, the Fresh Peach ink and pearls are both by Hero Arts.

I like making stuff; especially when it involves using up scraps :)
