A Christmas tree mandala

Hi there!

I started off this morning (trying to) make a fall card... but no mojo...

Then I started thinking Christmas, and everything fell in place! I used some purple accents and glitter, together with the more traditional green, on clean white card stock . Image coloured with promarkers.

I love how it turned out! The sentiment says "Merry Christmas" in Afrikaans.
I used my new Nellie Snellen die... it's so versatile!

Sometimes you have to go where the creative juices take you. Love this simple, beautiful card. The little trees in the center are an especially fun touch.
