I jumped at the chance!  (If you want to join the challenges, just click on the individual images above!)  :)

And I have to say so myself... I was REALLY happy with the card I came up with. :)

I was inspired by the lovely country blue in the photo as well as the gold sparkly tree. :) With regards to the blue band of paper that is crimped, I felt it needed more than just a plain blue band...so thus the crimping. :)
