Happy Holidays

I made this fun little card last night using a pre-done card base, torn paper with icicle stickles, distressed ink for the sky and the cute trees.....they are from Unity Stamp Co. but they are BANNERS!!  I just turned them upside down and they made the perfect trees!  I punched out little stars for the tops and glued white sequins down with glossy accents to resemble snow falling.  I also spattered some white acrylic paint, and the sentiment is a rub-on.  
This card was made for the challenge over at Studio D, to use sequins on a Christmas card.

I would also like to enter the following challenges:
+Love to create-use 3 favorite embellishments: stickles, sequins and punches
