FMS306 and MM257 Lemon Lime Christmas

Happy Thursday, peeps!  I have a Christmas card today, using Lemon Lime Twist!!!  I used the FMS sketch and the intriguing Merry Monday challenge of using a tag with texture, bling and die cuts!

The thing that intrigued me the most about the MM challenge though, was the photo....loved that fresh green!  I gulped and got out my Lemon Lime Twist cardstock and went to work:

I heat embossed a tree image from the retired Peaceful Pines set with white ink and embossing powder, then diecut it.  I also used two embossing folders, a big Dazzling Diamonds glimmer tag and some silver accessories!  I hope it's blingy enough!  The photos don't really do it justice, it's really pretty IRL!

And the inside:

And here's my growing-up-too-fast DGD, wearing a dress to school---I have to admit, I probably wore something very similar back in the 60s!!  Love those daisies!

Have a wonderful day and be blessed!

I'd never thought of Lemon Lime Twist and Christmas card in the same sentence but now I've seen this, I wonder why I hadn't! Fresh and lovely!

I love everything about this - the sparkly tag, the Lemon Lime(!), the tree stamp, the hints of silver, the falling snow - it's perfect!! Thank you for playing along with us at Freshly Made Sketches.
