PS Triangle Tree O' Christmas Tree Card

Rcvd my Paper Smooches order.

When I tried the triangle tree die first I had a piece of wire not completely removed/clipped off and it left a dent impression in my first cut so bee-ing my own critic I die cut it again when I saw that the piece had come off and would not bee creating a dent this time.

Used a sketch which you can see below.

Decided to give the card some distressing using Tim Holtz paper distresser. 

Weaved some twine on tree to give it a look of lights and added a twine bow to the star.
