Merry Christmas Tree

It's only a few days before Christmas and I finally found some time to make a card.  This card is for two challenges.  The CAS-ual Fridays challenge is combined with the 10 Minute Craft Dash Challenge.  The theme is a CAS Holiday card in less than 10 minutes.  Well it's a miracle but I did it, and with 1 minute and 17 seconds to spare.

I had an idea to make a Christmas Tree out of the Scalloped Circle Punch and Word Window punch from Stampin Up. For the Tree I punched out one scalloped circle and cut three scallops into a triangle for the top, 4 scallops for the middle and 5 scallops for the bottom.  I used the word window punch for the tree trunk.  I used foam dots to adhere the tree above the sentiment.  I punched the star out and popped it on top.  Then I added the rhinestones.

Here's my stop watch:

Thanks for stopping by and checking out my card.
