Oh! Christmas Tree...



Good morning friends.  It's Thursday and one day closer to the weekend.  It's my tradition to put up the Christmas tree on Saturday and I look forward to it every year.  Yeah for Christmas!!

I used lots of my old stash for this Christmas card and tried to keep it simple.  I am such a "matchy-matchy" kind of of girl, everything has to perfectly match.  I am trying to get out of that habit and have colors "compliment" each other, easier said that done!
I did use pink pearls though - I thought that was pretty wild :)
Card Ingredients:  K&Co chipboard piece and tag;  Bazzill and Recollections cardstock;  My Mind's Eye paper;  Labels 18 Nestie;  Celebrate It ribbons;  Fiskars Threading Water border punch;  Recollections pearls;  vintage button;  hemp twine.  Tools:  sewing machine.

I made this Christmas tree card for the following challenges:  Shopping our Stash - Christmas;  Ribbon Carousel - Holiday Hoopla (and use anything spooled);  little red wagon - Christmas;  Sketchbook Saturday w Chupa - sketch 38;  Cards & Things - color challenge #97




To all my American friends:  Happy Thanksgiving - enjoy lots of turkey, stuffing, and potatoes!

I really like all the shapes and dimensions in your card. It's very eye-appealing.

I'm a bit of a 'make it match' girl too so I know where you are coming from, but you have made a lovely card here, including the pink pearls! Kate x
