Oh Christmas Tree

Good morning all!Well I am back after a wonderful time in Wales with Keiran, my Mum & Dad, Brother, Sis-in-Law and nephew. We had a great time and we were really lucky with the rain at all except on the way home yesterday while we were visiting Swallow Falls. 
So now I'm back and my first challenge is of course the Less Is More one, as it's Saturday morning! Apparently it was announced earlier in the week that it would be an Anything Goes challenge......I missed that LOL! SO I have just made my card below......

This is made using one of the new Christmas dies I bought at GNPE last weekend. This one is Flowering Christmas Tree from Memory Box. It looks tricky to get stuck down without mess but I used the Letraset sticky film, Letratac, where I just placed the die cut image onto the sticky side, face up, then rubbed over it with the special tool. I then peeled it off and put it onto a heatproof mat and dabbed a clear embossing pad over it. Then I moved it to a piece of plain paper and sprinkled with glitter, before sticking to my card blank and pressing down firmly to make a permanent bond. I finished with red gems and a LoTV Christmas sentiment in Cardinal Versacolour.
Hope you like!
Right, shopping, washing and DT cards to make now, along with a 'thank you for looking after the cat' card, a new baby card, and a wedding card! Busy day!
