Christmas tree

Hi all
I decided to raid my stash and use up some of the Christmas items I bought over the last few  years ...I have made this card using an embossing folder from cuttlebug for the tree. The embossed backround is a sizzix folder. The flower is a Marianne d poinsettia die. The swirls are by memory box.The card base is from hunky-dory and the ribbons and gems are from meiflower crafts....a quick simple xmas card using all my old stuff...I am planning to use my old stuff and not buy any new xmas dies I am on a stash diet I didn't realise how much I had until I have started packing it away to move house...!!!!!!

  8. Tracey, this is a stunning card, can I say that you are linking to the wrong challenge at Ooh La La Creations. Use a Bow was the previous challenge. We are on Inspired by Nature, which you card, does suit. I can see that you have entered a couple of times, using the Bow (previous challenge), can you please change it on your post, so that I can come back and comment..would not want you to miss out on the prize, as your cards are stunning. Hugs xxx

  9. Great card and fabulous design. Love the dies you used, perfect for our challenge at Pile It On. Thank you for joining us and don't forget to check on Wednesday who's the lucky winner.
