Merry Monday Christmas Card Challenge #84 - Use a tree and some bling on your card.

The colours for last week's challenge certainly brought out some gorgeous designs. I love how Challenges focus you on using just a few items or colours for a card. Seeing how you all interpret the theme each week is a real treat.   

In this week's Merry Monday Challenge, we are asked to use a Christmas tree on our card, and a bit of bling. The trees in the inspiration image are fabulous.


 Once again I found myself without a suitable image so I resorted to creating a wee tree in my graphics program.  The die cut 'celebrate' with added glitter is the bling on my card. I do love these soft versions of traditional Christmas colours.



Stamps: Hero Arts Sentiments
Dies: MFT 'Celebrate' Accent it dies, Lawn Fawn Stitched leaves, Spellbinders labels 17 and eyelet circles, Dee's Distinctively WREATH BUILDER Die Holly leaves
Ink: Versafine Black, and red, Distress ink edges. Perfect pearls on tree
Other: Glitter Donna Salazar, buttons, pearls, seam binding, twine, starDigital: Own design tree.

Drop by the other design team members blogs to see their fabulous cards. These can be accessed from Lesley's blog, Always Playing With Paper

See you here next week....Christmas is just a squeek away so get those Christmas cards finished!
