One Die...No Color to All Colors!

The Banded Tree die from Simon Says Stamp said "GRAPHIC" to me...decided to make a card with it's original intent, and one with my graphic idea...the Christmas with no color ('cept the heart) the other with my beloved rainbow:)!!...
 I die cut and added a tree trunk die from the Trees and Trunks dies from Simon.  The heart is from another set of new dies(I layered and glossy accented), Holy Couple and Barn dies.  I originally had color in both the tree and trunk, but I thought there was something cool about no color.  I love "LOVE" at Christmas...would LOVE to see more LOVE in Christmas stamps:)!!

OK...just added this one before posting...I also tried one with metallic silver paper and red metallic paper for the heart and a die cut sentiment...a little more festive?...
It's so hard to photograph metallic paper...but here's a closeup of the red metallic...an attempt:)!!...

Then...I die cut the tree 5 times, turning around with each cut,  stamped sentiment, adhered to card, and filled in with 10 different colored strips that I die cut with the banded tree die:)!  The sentiments from both cards are from older Simon stamp sets...listed below.
Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
