A Christmas Glow for TTS

It's time for a new challenge at 'Tis The Season and  it's a beautiful inspiration photo. I just love the glow of the Christmas lights and that's what I drew my inspiration from.

Here in my neck of the woods we have a lot of black spruce trees. I really love them when they're covered in snow and I always imagine hanging Christmas lights and ornaments on them. I decided to do it on paper instead, using various SU makers to create lights on the trees. I kept it simple by stamping a row of trees across the card with some slight watercoloring done along the bottom to give the ground a little more definition. After using markers to add the lights I stamped the sentimen in Real Red across the bottom of the card. I really love how simple and beautiful this one layer card came out!

Head over to the TTS blog to see what the rest of the DT came up with and then play along with us!
