September CAS Christmas Card Challenge ~ A Christmas tree!

Welcome friends, I am so glad you are here today!
I am hosting the CAS Christmas Challenge this month and I am looking for a Christmas tree, now it can be decorated or not, but you all know the many different types of trees that definitely depict a Christmas tree...some with balls and boughs and others with snow and then some that are just green.
Just have fun and be sure to keep it clean and simple, lots of white space and then of course your tree!
Here I used a tree that I stamped and colored with copics, I masked it off so I could brush on some sky in the background and added a couple of snowflakes and some white dots from a gel pen which are hard to see in the picture.  This was super easy to mass produce and I made quite a few and had fun coloring them one day!
Please check out all the fabulous trees from our special guest Steph and from the other designers and then I will see you in the gallery!

Heart Hugs, friends!
