I don't think I've done this before. Combined three challenges that is. But they kind of all came together synchronistically.
The Jingle Belles wanted layers - at least 3. Then there was the inspiration photo from Christmas Card Challenge 13 - I had this SU set I hadn't used yet with these great trees. And in my feed I saw the sketch from the Paper Players which caught my eye because it pulled it all together with the layers and the color and how I could use that tree.
I wish I had a source for paper the color of the inspiration photo, but I didn't so I decided to use all of the dark purples that I did have on hand. I hope you see colors that look well together because they do IRL, but computers differ so much, especially with dark purples and dark blues. I checked this out on my screen at work and it didn't look quite as nice. That makes me sad a little.

And I took a little close-up so you could see the stars embossed on that Concord Crush panel. I used a word bubble die trimmed down for the sentiment. I was trying to find some silver ribbon to use instead of the purple glitter ribbon, but it was not to be. Then after I finished the card I looked over at my stash of washi tape and saw my silver tape that would have been perfect. Have you ever done that? Doesn't matter now though because I do like the way this came out without it.
So here is the recipe for this card:
Paper: Blackberry Bliss, Concord Crush, Elegant Eggplant, Whisper White
Stamps: SU Wonderland
Ink: Blackberry Bliss, Concord Crush, VersaMark
Additional: SU Star EF, Silver EP, Word Bubbles Framelits, 2" and 1 3/4" circle punches,
Celebrate It Glitter Ribbon
