A semi-creative Christmas card...

I purchased a package of 8 blank cards from Michaels a while back and played a bit yesterday. The cards are glossy so I had to be careful when stamping so that my images wouldn't smear.

I should have used the darker green (Viridian Leaf PH) on the stars (Christmas Minis set) in the white circles instead of the light green (Chartreuse PH). The tree (Joy of Christmas set) was also stamped on glossy to match the card and the text is from the Thinking of You hostess set. I used a green from DCWV Brights cardstock stack to layer all stamped images.

Here is a closeup of the tree. The ink had quite a reaction to the glossy. You can see some of the "dots" where I used my Stardust Clear Gel pen for some bling.

Here is the inside. I used the stars again to give some design to the inside and the text is from the Holiday Wishes set. I'm still trying to decide if I need to add something more to the cover. Any ideas or leave it as is?? Comments appreciated!!
