Stamping Sensations DT card

Hello. December already, can you believe it? I haven't made any Christmas cards for myself or even thought about buying presents yet....must try to get organised!

Anyhow, this card is my DT offering for Stamping Sensations where the theme for the December challenge is Treemendous. You really should pay a visit to the blogs of the other team members as there are some gorgeous ideas, many with inking, which is something I have never mastered. Our sponsor this month is Visible Image and the prize is a collection of lovely stamps - check out the challenge blog.

The trees on my card are from one of my newest stamps designs for Tonic Studios. The set is called Country Cottage and contains some lovely brickwork stamps as well as this topiary tree. It will be available to buy from retailers from December 12th.
The Trellis Wall die behind the main tree image is another new Pick of the Bunch die forTonic Studios, as is the ivy around the top. The ivy is part of a die combination called Window Basket which contains a window basket die (!) , leaf sprig, ivy and also some flowers to fit in the window basket.
The paper is DCWV  First Edition New Leaf - lovely stuff.
