I have been gone almost a week, so used a Embossing Paste stenciled tree that was on my desk. I already had the sketch in mind from the CAS(E) This Sketch #70 Challenge, which made my design very easy.
When I saw this weeks Seize the Birthday Topper Challenge was Buttons, Rhinestones and/or Bling I immediately thought of Dazzling Diamonds to make my paste embossed tree special. It was the 1st time I have tried this technique on a dried paste image. Just laid the stencil over the pasted image and dabbed with Versamark and sprinkled with the DD shaking off the excess. Worked great. No heating required. I wish my photo showed the sparkle better. I mean...it really sparkles in all lights and angles :-) I used a favorite SU birthday set from 2005.

Wow, this is gorgeous, I love the sparkly tree, and I love the wood grain background with it, the use of white and soft suede goes so well, it is just a great card. TFS
