The Stamping Boutique Sponsor DYSU?

Morning, and a right cold one it is here, BBBBRRRRRRR! Back to scraping thick ice off the windscreen before taking the littlies to school (gggrrr) but back to pulling on a hat to hide the scary 'bed-head' hair (yay!) so not all bad!

Today sees the start of a new challenge at Do You Stack Up? and The Stamping Boutique are proud to be one of their sponsors!
The theme for the challenge is TREES and I have used Princess Jennifer Latte Decorating the Tree one of Tracey's fabby images for my card. She is such a wonderful character!

I used a 6"x6" square card, black card for matting and the DPs are MME 'Snowed In' Winter Papers, and were a freebie with the Cardmaking & Papercraft magazine; I even managed to find one with trees on to match the theme!  I tried to keep the layout and details simple as there is so much fab detail in the image, I wanted that to be the focal point. I added some black & white gingham ribbon for contrast. The sentiment is from Card Craftworks. My image is of course coloured using Promarkers!

So, I will enter my card into the following challenges:
