Clean and Simple Sketch 97

The long weekend has given me a chance to look around the challenges again and luckily a lot of challenges come on a Thursday or Friday, including CAS Colours and Sketches. Being an even week, this time it is a sketch and I've never done one of their sketches before.
As I looked at it, I kept seeing a Christmas tree on the side, in front of a window looking out to the evening. So I played with the idea, and this is what I came up with. 

Update: This card was a top 3 pick at CAS Colour and Sketches.

Paper: Whisper White, Cherry Cobbler, Wild Wasabi, strip from SU Christmas Stack DSP
Stamps: SU Festival of Trees, Sentiment from Hastings Rubber Stamps
Inks: Wild Wasabi, Cherry Cobbler, Mossy Meadow (for actual stamping), Marina Mist, Island Indigo and Night of Navy sponged for the sky.
Other: Dimensionals for the tree, bucket and sentiment, oval framelits, coloured markers to edge and define the cut shapes, corner rounder punch, Wild Wasabi ribbon.
