Triple Threat

***This is my 2nd post for the day.  Please click here for my ColourQ entry!*** 


This card is a triple threat challenge card!  I'm entering it in All Things Unity's Be Inspired challenge, the Young Crafters Unite Envelope to Match challenge and the Holiday Madness Challenge at Wee Memories.  The inspiration for the ATU challenge came from this picture of a pillow I found in Real Simple magazine.  I liked the turquoise and white design and, although I initially planned that the images would be more like the pillow, I ended up using the Christmas tree because it has a folky feel to it.      
Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Bazzill Basics, (Tempting Turquoise) Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Image and sentiment from Sept 2011 KOM - All Seasons) Unity Stamp Co
Ink:  (Tempting Turquoise) Stampin' Up
Dies:  (Nestabilities Labels 14)  Spellbinders
Gems:  Doodlebug

Turquoise is just such an awesome fun fresh colour for Christmas - I love that you stamped the tree with it too, and the gems with that little pop of yellow for the star...perfect!
