TSG185 Gift of Giving

This week our challenge at There She Goes is brought to us by our Trendsetters! We are challenging YOU to make a card or project using our Season of Giving theme! You can use the theme in any way you chose, whether it be cards, tags, or actual gifts!
 I decided to have a little bit of fun and create a scene inside a picture frame.  For this project, I used a variety of DP (mainly Echo Park, My Mind's Eye and SImple Stories) for the trees as well as the background. In the background, I stamped some snowflakes from the set "HoHoHo" in Chocolate Chip ink and added some cream colored pearls.  The trees were created using "Christmas Tree Stacker" die from Dee's Distinctively Dies.  Each part of the trees has been sponged with Old Olive ink.  The reindeer are also from the HoHoHo set and have been watercolored with Tombow Markers and then popped up for a bit of dimension.  It's hard to see in the photo but I added a bunch of "Snow" at the bottom of the inside of the frame to make it look like a snowy ground. 
To be eligible for the giveaway, create a card or project using this week’s challenge and then come back to the TSG Blog to add your name and a link to your project in the InLinkz that is located at the bottom of this challenge post. This challenge is open until the winner has been announced on the following Monday (December 17th). The winner will get a $5 gift certificate to use in the TSG Web store!
By participating in this challenge, you may also find yourself in the Trendsetting Spotlight that shines on the TSG Blog every Thursday. We will be on the lookout to find challenge cards that stand out and show Trendsetting qualities. TSG stamps are not required to participate in the challenges but are appreciated :)
You do not need to have a blog to be able to participate in the TSG Challenges! You can simply add the URL link from your project after it has been uploaded to your online craft gallery. If you upload your card to an online craft gallery, please use the keyword TSG185 so we can check out your beautiful work!
Thanks for popping by!!!
