A Simple Tree

When I saw that the theme of the Less is More Challenge was Trees I decided to make a card using my favourite Marianne Christmas Tree die.


I have used some more of the paper that I made from my Carta Bella Winter Fun paper pack using my favourite technique from the Pattern Play Online Card Class.

The white panel has been embossed with a Cuttlebug embossing folder using an embossing diffuser to create a smooth oval on which to place my tree.  My sentiment is a Kirsty Wiseman stamp on a hand cut banner.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Aud Sentiments Challenge 92 - Christmas Sentiments

I would like to say a huge thank you to everyone who takes the time to visit my blog and leave a comment, your company is most welcome.
