Trish chose Sue(bensarmom) as the Queen for this week. Looking at her VAST gallery(nearly 5000 card !!), there was so much to choose from as you can imagine. I chose THIS CARD with its wintery theme. I brayered my bg and used just one tree and a simple one-word sentiment.
I combined Wendy's F4A Challenge into the card. Her challenge was to use a 2-step stamp. I used an old favorite SU Christmas tree.
Congratulations, Sue....enjoy your week in the spotlight.

Beautiful Sallie! I always love when you start making your Christmas cards. Each one is so unique! I love this tree. So pretty and love how you used paint to spatter. I used to love to do that when I painted wood. Never thought of doing it on a card.

I just looked at your card again and had to comment one more time. (I've never commented twice on one card before.) This card just makes me happy! It's been open on my tabs all day so I could go back and look at it from time to time. Those colors are WONDERFUL! The whole card is perfection!!
