Oh Christmas Tree

It's the first of the month and that means a new challenge at Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra, our theme is always 'anything goes' - you can use any materials, any techniques etc., as long as the end result is a Christmas card.

I have used the fabulous image called Make it snappy - Oh Christmas tree kindly provided by our regular sponsor - Bugaboo. I coloured my image with ProMarkers and added glitter and 3D Crystal Lacquer, my papers are from the Dovecraft Back to Basics Modern Christmas collection.

I framed my image with a Spellbinders Grand Labels Eleven die cut with the bottom cut off.  I also die cut a border with a Clearly Besotted Scalloped Edge Die and added a seam binding bow along with some card candy.

Bugaboo Stamps are our sponsor this challenge

They are offering $21 of digital stamps to the randomly selected winner.

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

Christmas Card Challenge 17 - Anything Goes
Jingle Belles Challenge - Fa-La-La-La-La
Scribble and Scrap Challenge 41 - Always Anything Goes
CHNC Challenge 222 - Stick it any which way you like

Make sure you pop over to the Crafty Hazelnut's Christmas Challenge Extra blog and check out the fabulous DT inspiration - we would love for you to join us for our Anything Goes Christmas challenge.

I like your idea of altering the die cut frame, I haven't thought of this before, but you can actually create a new look doing so. Fun contemporary design in traditional colors.
