Christmas Card for Team Cookies and Cards

As promised, here is the card I made for Team Cookies and Cards.  I thought it might be best to make a card that either a man or woman might be comfortable sending.  I wish you could see the sparkle on little Sony digital just doesn't do it justice.  The base card is elegant Fabriano from Dick Blick.  I just love texture, the deckled edges and small size of these elegant note and envelopes.  The color is somewhere between white and ivory...not too much of either.  Wonderful for watercoloring, takes ink beautifully and great for quick cards.  For this card I used Stampin Up's new Snow Swirled set.  Like the notecards, simple and elegant. 
 I first stamped the tree in Versamark, the sprinkled with gold Tinsel EP (the tinsel sparkles as opposed to regular Gold EP) and heat set.  I stamped the greeting, repeated the process and then added the clear bling from Martha Stewart to the snowflakes on the tree.  DONE!
This design is so simple and elegant, I'm thinking this may be my Christmas card this year.  What do you think?
Blessings and Happy Stamping!
