Be-Jeweled Challenge!

Hello again! I am incorporating two challenges in this card today. Verve Visual Stamps is celebrating an anni-VERVE-sary and for 12 days they are having sketch challenges (yea!!!), my favorite! This is the first one (they are already on day 7, and I don't think I'll get to do all of them, but you never know!). I am also combining this with today's Ways to Use It Challenge #178. We were to use jewels in our design. That was very easy with this one. This tree from Believe by PTI was what this sketch needed...something tall and skinny (unlike me, ha-ha)! I colored it with pink and green copic markers and added the red rhinestones. The star on top is something I picked up at a discount store in the scrapbooking section. I layered the tree on Certainly Celery. The Pink Pirouette was run through my cuttlebug and I used SU's scallop border punch for the top piece. I put Certainly Celery ribbon around that piece. The dp is SU's new Bella Rose. It looked holiday-ish to me. The base and triangles are Riding Hood Red. Pretty simple, but these layers drove me crazy! Here's the inside. This would be too much to do for a bunch of cards, but I think it's kind pretty for someone special. Thanks for stopping by!
