Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge: Anything Goes

I was really energized by WCMD yesterday and decided to revisit a Christmas card design and enter it in the current Paper Smooches Sparks Challenge: Anything Goes :



I think the font of this sentiment from the Paper Smooches Christmas Sampler set goes perfectly with my funky little mosaic tree:


I can't remember the last time I decoupaged something - grade school, maybe??!!  This technique was alot of fun and one I know I'll be trying again soon:)  I randomly cut different sized squares and rectangles from a package of Hero Arts foliage layering papers and adhered them to a PTI rustic white cs panel with Aleene's instant decoupage and then brushed the entire panel with a thin layer of decoupage.
Other Supplies Used: PTI tree die, Doodlebug Designs baker's twine

Thanks for all your lovely comments!
