A tree full of Love

So, by the skin of my teeth, I have finished my X picture for this fortnight's Alphabet challenge! Of course the letter is X and following in the footsteps of one of the design team, I decided to cheat a little and make an Xmas tree - with a love theme twist.
Sometimes when you leave things to the last minute, you end up just doing it without too much fuss and umming and urring! It takes me ages sometimes wondering just what colour or stencil or stamp to use next but I loved that I just went with my first choices and that I am happy with the result.
The picture just blurred when I tried to enlarge so I have kept it this size instead -  

One bit that I especially love is my star. You can't really see the glitter but I just drew the star, coloured it in with neo-color crayons and over-stamped with the rectangle stamp from the Paperartsy Ellen Vargo EEV02 set - I bought this set with the money from a Paperartsy challenge win and have used it ALOT, very pleased with it. It then has some glitter glue squeezed on - looks fab and the kids oooed and ahhed when they saw it!
