The color scheme for this card was inspired by the Target Dollar Spot. A couple of weeks ago I got a roll of patterned tape (the strip of ornaments at the bottom of the card). I've been wanting to make a card to go with the tape - Pink Passion, Real Red, Old Olive, Glorious Green.
Crosshatch BG was inked with craft spots and so was the tree. Tree was embossed with II EP. Dot tree ornaments and the "wish" oval are covered in Crystal Effects. Tree and wish ovals are layered off-set on same size ovals in chocolate chip.

Fantastic card - I love all the details! The multi-colored crosshatch bg, "shadowed" oval & sentiment (neat effect), the fibers, brads, decorative tape - this one's way, way, too cool to give away; I'd frame it and keep it as a decoration! Great job, Jami.
