Uniko - Christmas reminder ....

... Good morning! I'm here with my reminder card for this month's Uniko challenge - USC#38R. Our theme this month, not surprisingly, is CHRISTMAS. After our lovely Thanksgiving brunch yesterday, I spent the rest of the afternoon in my craft room making Christmas cards - more to follow in the next few days. However, here's my reminder card for this month's challenge:

Stamps: Uniko - Rustic Christmas, Christmas Sparkle, Most Wonderful, Simply Said Christmas, Christmas Pop; Waltzingmouse - Woodgrain
Inks: Versamark; Stampin' Up! - Early Espresso, Cucumber Crush; Distress - Tumbled Glass
Dies: Lil Inkers - Stitched Rectangles
Accessories: White Lustre Card; SU Card - Chocolate Chip; Tim Holtz Watercolour Card; White & Silver Embossing Powder; Zig Brushes; Wink of Stella - Clear

My inspiration for this card came from the lovely photo over at Jingle Belles - JB:16:24. I took inspiration from the turquoise baubles, the word Noel and the lovely tree. I cut a panel of brown card and stamped it with a wood grain finished and adhered it to the card. On some watercolour card I used Versamark to stamp a tree, the lovely ornament and greeting. I added some colour with my Zig brushes. I covered the tree and ornaments with some sparkle from a clear Wink of Stella brush. On the inside I cut another mat layer of brown card and on the white panel I added a simple greeting and another Christmas tree.
