I love all paper crafts including mixed media, journaling and cards. I also dabble in papermaking, photography, fibre art, and altered books. I am an active member of several card and mixed media groups and on the design team of several challenge blog. I love the world of blogging, it has opened many doors for me.

O Christmas Tree, O Christmas Tree

Holly Jolly Christmas Challenge this week's challenge is called "O Christmas Tree".  

I used sheer fabric over the first layer of the card then I added lace, snowflakes, ribbon, sentiment, button, pearls and a lacy round die cut.  To complete the card I added a 3D Christmas tree cut with Nestabilities' Christmas tree die. 

Thank you for stopping to take a look and join us at Holly Jolly this week. Christmas will soon be here.
