Two Simple Trees

I have another card using my favourite Marianne Christmas Tree die and my favourite paper technique from the Pattern Play Online Card Class.


I won't bombard you with the boring details of how I made it, if you are interested you can find them on my two previous posts.  I added some gold stickles to the outside of the trees on this card  - you can just about see it in the photograph.

I would like to enter this card into the following challenges:

Crafting with Dragonflies Challenge 13 - Nature/Leaves/Trees
Sparkle N Sprinkle October Challenge - Anything goes with Glitter
ABC Christmas Challenge - U -  Under the Tree

Thank you for visiting me today and for any comments that you may like to leave.

This card has a clean layout and no embellishments, but it's far from plain. I really like what you've acheived with patterned paper and the use of a dies on this card!
