Chap's Christmas card

A couple of new sets of stamps arrived the other day, this tree being from one of them. It's a Hero Arts Christmas tree with a music manuscript design. I'm a real sucker for anything music related.
I stamped the Artemio background and chopped it into 3 pieces, for three different cards and stamped 3 trees, which I coloured with Copics. I cut them out, scored them vertically and stuck them together to give a 3D effect.

A little Glamour Dust was added... I really rather like a bit of twinkle. I inverted the pot as I rather like how the shape echoes the tree this way up.

The sentiment is from Papermania I think.
This is a page from December's Papercraft Inspirations Magazine. As you may be able to see there is one of my cards there!
Getting published seems to be getting to be a bit of a habit! Lucky me!
