Sparkling trees from Chocolate Baroque

Oops good old blogger forgot to post this yesterday and i only just noticed. I always look forward to getting my mits on the new Christmas Stamps from Chocolate Baroque and this years new designs are as beautiful as always with 2 new A4 stamp sheets and some stunning cling mounted individual stamps (you can find them all here) This card uses stamps from Sparkling Trees

Sparkling Trees Rubber Stamp sheet - A5

I made this rocker card using the group of 3 trees and the snowflake stamps using a card blank from my stash. I stamped the trees using Stormy Skies Distress Ink in the centre of the circle and then created a little forest by repeat stamping the image using both first and second generation stamping.

I distressed the edges with more Stormy Skies and added lots of glitter and gems. The bottom panel was created using the same ink and the snowflake stamps from the same stamp sheet. I assembled the card, layering the focal image up over a paper doiley and adding a bow topped with a button. To finish off I've stamped the sentiment from Christmas Candlelight on white card with versamark and embossed with silver embossing powder. I cut the sentiment out and added a little colour with more Stormy Skies. 

You can see the sparkle a little better in this pic
