Whimsical Christmas - Stampin' Up! Whimsical Trees - Paper Players 551

   Happy Sunday stampers!  I hope you've been having a good weekend so far.  The Paper Players are back with a fun new sketch challenge.  I hope you'll play along and share your card in the gallery so we can all ooohhh and aaahhh over it.

 Ann has given us this fantastic layout this week and I know I'll be using this one again.

  I decided to go straight to Christmas with this layout and use a few more new products from the upcoming July-December mini catalog.

  The new Whimsical Trees bundle and coordinating paper, Whimsy & Wonder were perfect for this challenge.  The tall trees were just right for the rectangle and the DSP for the narrow strips.  I added in a bit of Gold Specialty paper for the stars, tree trimming and rectangle backing.

  See the wonderful inspiration from the Design Team and play along!
