IO Challenge- Tis the Season

Greetings friends.  Today's theme is "Tis the Season, and I was inspired to use a tree that reminds me  of the Charlie Brown Christmas tree.  That in turn makes me think of my brother and watching "A Charlie Brown Christmas" over and over.

To make the card, I used the Linus Tree C19633 and added the Comfort and Joy D19660 sentiment.  For the tree, I wanted to add a bit of color, so I colored it  with a bit of green watercolor pencil and softened the color with a Dove Blender pen.  To embellish the tree, I added a gold metallic marker to the star and a red gel pen to accent the ornaments. To finish the card, I colored the word "comfort" with the same green watercolor pencil and the word "joy" with the R32 Copic marker.

Don't forget to visit the other designers for more inspiration!
