Challenge me a Christmas Card with Kylie Purtell

Welcome! Last year, I did a series on my blog where I asked people to set me a Christmas card challenge. This year, I'm stepping it up a notch, by asking crafty friends to join me!
How cool is this graphic!! My crafty friend, Kylie Purtell, made it especially for me! YAY!  You can check out her blog HERE.

Today, the challenge theme is "Christmas tree". 

My special guest today is none other than the lady who designed my lovely graphic above - Kylie Purtell - you can check out her take on this challenge HERE.

Here's my take:
I used the Poppy Stamps "Boddington Tree Border" die, which I cut out of watercolour paper I had coloured with Color Burst powders and Perfect Pearls in water. I then used the inlaid die cut technique to add a white die cut, and then put all the little bits back into place (note to self: I must get myself some Glad Press and Seal for this technique!) I added a sentiment from Clearly Besotted white embossed onto black cardstock, and a scattering of Pretty Pink Posh sequins.
Thanks for visiting :)
