Oh Christmas Tree Oh.....

Another Christmas card for the challenge at Merry Monday. When I first saw the theme


I didn't think I would play along. The only image that came to mind was pine cones of which I don't have. Then I browsed through my stash of Christmas stamps and realized the tree from PTI's Polka Dot Parade would work nicely.  Thus my card:

 I used an ombre effect on the tree. The sentiment is embossed in gold. The ric rac was dyed using Chocolate Brown ink.

Thanks for stopping by to take a peek.
