Christmas in July!

I can't believe the year has passed it's halfway mark and is rushing down-hill towards December! And thanks to Flourishes, they're really challenging our clocks!  This card is an entry for 3 challenges:

1.  Meljen's #68:  Follow the recipe - 1 x Bow, 3 x Brads, 1 Circle!
2.  Flourishes Timeless Tuesday #128 - Christmas in July (FTTC128)
3.  Simon Says Stamp - Shaped cards

The image is Meljen's Christmas Tree. I dressed it up with 3 brads, a tiny bow and added some glitter (see close-up below). And it's of course layered on another circle which is mounted on a scalloped circle card base.
Note on the card base:
After I had cut out the scalloped circle, I shaded the edges with Crushed Olive (Tim Holtz DI) to fit in with the green of the tree, but left the inside and back layer white.
Spellbinders used: Petite Circles Small, Scalloped Circles
