Tree Snow Globe

A Christmas card created for a couple of challenges:
Papertrey's  Make It Monday

and Merry Monday's new challenge.

Betsy's tutorial, this week, shows us all how to give our die cuts 
the look of Epoxy Embellishments.
I applied her technique to the trees in the snow globe, as well as the pinecone and leaves.
The sentiment banner started it's life as a Pinefeather die cut, and is also coated with clear 
embossing powder 3 times.

Dear Friends, 

I know we all share the sadness of the tragic event that took place in Las Vegas.
Our prayers continue to look to our Lord for comfort for those families affected.
May all who have need find their comfort in Him.

'Blessed are those who mourn, 
for they will be comforted.'
       Matthew 5:4 (NIV)
