Lovely Christmas ~ Merry Monday & Stampin Royalty

Good morning stampers!  This unconventional Christmas card is for Merry Monday 121 & Stampin' Royalty 241.  Merry Monday called for using pinecones, greens, and plaid ribbon.  Stampin' Royalty is a glitter challenge. 
Wear Our Badge
I started by inking the trees from Lovely As A Tree at the bottom of the card in Midnight Muse ink, then I stamped the ink off once before I stamped on my white cardstock.  Next, I sponged Blushing Bride down the middle of the card, came in with some Soft Sky next, then Pool Party and finally just a little bit of Marina Mist around the edges.  I stamped the new Ornamental Pine evergreen image in Midnight Muse and then added the fussy cut pine cones from the same set.  I stamped off one time with Midnight Muse and then sponged them with some Pool Party.  
 Using my glue pen, I dotted some snowflakes and then covered them with Dazzling Diamonds.  I also glittered around the bottoms of the trees to mimic snow.  
Lastly, I added the sentiment from Come To Bethlehem (retired) on a sponged banner-cut piece, and a little bow from some ancient pink gingham ribbon that I have had forever and ever.  
The inspiration for this card came from a Vintage Christmas card that I spotted over on Pinterest.  I love that site!!!!

Here's a list of my supplies.....
Stamps: Ornamental Pine, Come to Bethlehem, Lovely As A Tree
Ink: Blushing Bride, Midnight Muse, Pool Party, Soft Sky, Marina Mist
Paper: Pool Party, White
Accessories: Dazzling Diamonds, Pink Gingham ribbon
