Here is my example of the sketch. You might not remember, but I did a Halloween card using the same lime green tissue paper. This tissue paper is the tissue paper that Mandy always wraps your precious goodies up in.

Lime green is actually a very versatile color. It worked great for a Halloween card, but works just as great as a fun Christmas card. This particular tissue came in a package that I received yesterday and one of the other items in there was a great stamp sent from Unity called Christmas tags. I chose this set, because it has so many cute images.

For my text, I thought it would be cute to print out one of the versus from the Christmas carol "O' Christmas Tree" Then I stamped my tree image again and colored in the star with my gold Spica Glitter Pen. Here's a close up of the tissue paper and the Spica Glitter Pen.
