Wonky Christmas Tree Card (Crafty Creations Challenges #281)

Hi everyone :-D 

It´s time for a new challenge at Crafty Creations Challenges.

Our theme for this fortnight is #281 - Something Old, Something New.

Our sponsor for this challenge is Fresh Brewed Designs and they are giving an awesome prize to our random winner.

For this challenge I made this Wonky Christmas Tree Card, using our sponsor´s image Fresh Brewed Designs 'Wonky Christmas Tree'.

New: image (Fresh Brewed Designs 'Wonky Christmas Tree')
Old: cardstock paper, aquarell colored pencils, digital paper, transparent varnish (I have this bottle almost 5 years), dimensional foam

The image is paper pieced. I printed 5 images on a white paper, colored parts I needed with my aquarell colored pencils and an universal white pencil for writing on gloss surfaces, fussy cut all pieces, colored edges with a black marker and glued all pieces together. I placed small pieces of dimensional foam under every layer, but only on edges, to pop up layers of this fun tree. I printed one more image on a white cardstock paper (I removed a trunk and pot from original image) and placed pieced tree over it.
At the end I added a transparent varnish on yellow dots and purple stripes to create glossy accents.

Card dimensions are 105 mm x 148 mm (4 1/8" x 5 7/8").
