Tree Trimmings

 This is the first of the cards to share with you that we just made @ camp this week! It was my Christmas Party/Stamp a Stack to celebrate the Christmas Season, but also to thanks each attendee for the past yrs. business! I so appreciate each one of you!
 Hard to capture the simple elegance of this one in a picture but it really was all sparkly and gorgeous! Stamp a ma jig is a must with this stamp set so you can get that string all lined up nicely above your ornament! supper frustrating when it's dangling in mid air and your ornament is 'floating'....
Got some shabby chic going on w/ the soft suede piece. If you don't own the distressing tool...scratch your finger nail along the edges and 'rough' it up a bit and then i just rolled one corner over. I lick my finger tip to get it started and then rub back and forth till it's rolled like you like it! sounds kinda gross... but really it works for me and i have $17 to spend on something else Stampin Up instead of the distressing tool! ;P
