Christmas Trees

Didn't get the stitches out of my arm this week as I had hoped but fingers
 crossed they will come out on
Monday when I go back to the surgeon again.

My third week as Guest designer with 52 CCT.  This month is going so fast.
Today we are looking for Christmas trees and it looks
as if Tilda is out after dark looking for hers as she is carrying
a lamp so I have made sure I gave her plenty of light by
sponging the background with Wild Honey.
Just love the effect of the DI on gloss card.
The DP comes from Kassaz and I have used the same paper to
cut out the trees with a Marianne die.
I used white flower soft mixed with glitter for the fur around her coat.
Sorry Ruth I didn't make a fancy insert for this card
as I have a lot and I mean a LOT of insert paper
I do put loose leaf inserts in a lot of my cards
and this is one of them.
It has a loose leaf green marble insert decorated with more trees.
Sorry no photo.

Challenges :
Christmas stamping all year long - Anything goes.
CHNC 2 - Anything goes.
Make it Monday - Anything goes.

Thanks for dropping in.
