More Christmas Challenges Yay!

I looked up some more Christmas card challenges they had listed on the Jingle Belles blog so that I could challenge myself to keep up with my Christmas cards all year long (and maybe get to actually send them this year!) I found this blog: Christmas Cards All Year Round. I loved the current challenge to use green and two different green patterned papers so I decided to play along. :) Here is what I came up with...

 The background circles were cut using my Cricut Expression and the Elegant Edges cartridge. I used plain Recollections card stock for the shadow and glittered Recollections Christmas paper for the image.
 The Christmas tree was cut with my Slice and the Mistletoe card out of some more Recollections Holiday paper.
The snowflakes are two different Martha Stewart snowflake punches and I used The Paper Company glittered card stock in white. I pop dotted them and used them to decorate my tree. The banner is hand cut and I used a Walmart .97 cent bin stamp and embossed it with black powder for the sentiment.

Thanks for looking, I would love to hear what you think so please leave a comment if you wish! :)
