Oh Christmas tree...


I'm getting right into the christmas spirit now, I even managed to get in a bit of christmas shopping at the week-end. I'm never usually this organised, it must be the process of making seasonal cards bringing the time of year to the forefront of my mind which can only be a good thing!

And what better way to get in the mood than a christmas carol in front of the tree? This card is made up of 2 stamps both available from Belles 'n Whistles (Belle's Carols and The Christmas Tree) and are coloured with distress inks. A little glitter on the baubles, another handmade poinsettia and we're good to go! The DP is Basic Grey & I used Mirri-board! I haven't had that out for aaaaaages!!!

I used this week's sketch from Friday Sketchers, I love how it came together, a lovely simple layout making the adorable image the focus, just as it should be! The addition of glitter also means I can enter this card for Cute Card Thursday

I hope you like it :)
