O Christmas Tree

   My last Christmas card for 2013!
   I matted and layered white card and red mirri card onto another piece of white card. I then cut a doily into different size pieces and coloured them with distress inks. I glued these pieces in layers to form a Christmas tree and then applied Stickles to the shape to make the tree decorations. A peel off star was added to the top.
   I then stamped a Sentiment using a Kaisercraft stamp and coloured it using Promarkers.

   I would like to enter this into the following challenges:
   Inky Impressions - merry Christmas
   Kaboodle Doodles - Christmas colours
   Papertake Weekly - anything Christmas

    This is beautiful and delicate looking. How many of us have doileys that we will never use due to the size etc. Love the shape and the little details.

    This is the last Challenge of the year, as well as the last 'weekly challenge'. As of the 7th January, we will be going to Monthly Challenges and I hope you will join in with plenty more of our challenges in 2014.
