Hello!  At Christmas Card Throwdown we’re starting the month with stash challenge week, where we invite our challenge participants to use particular items from their crafting stash to create a Christmas or wintry card.  This time it’s a triple item find – gems, pearls, and/or sequins.  You can use any combination of those types of embellishments.

I’ve combined our stash challenge with the current Freshly Made Sketches challenge, rotating the sketch 180° to turn it upside-down.  It’s hard to tell in the photo, but the red half-oval is cut from textured cardstock.  The tree takes the place of the banner element of the sketch.  I stamped it on a scrap piece of cardstock and fussy cut it, adhering it to the card with dimensionals.  I used some pearls to decorate the tree and added a star-shaped, pearl-embellished sequin to top it off.
