Watercolor Winter for MM116 & SSSC226

Hi, Stampers! I haven't made a Christmas card, well, since last Christmas. It's kind of hard for me to think about the holidays when it's 85 degrees outside, but I thought I'd make one using some retired goodies and to play along with a couple of challenges.

When I saw my friend LeAnne was hosting a green and white challenge at Merry Monday, I had to play along. I used the sketch from Sweet Sunday.

I used markers to color my pine boughs and brightened them up with a bit of glitter. I'm basically a glitter phobe but I think it looks so pretty on a holiday card.

I stamped off for a lighter images on the inside of my card, and stamped the images on the envelope, too. This card is ready to go!
