Christmas Trees

Hi there,

Just a quick pop to share my card for the current  Merry Monday Christmas Challenge,
where Deanne has picked a no stamping theme.  I actually found this quite challenging as I love to colour, so I use stamps on all my cards. After a look through my supplies I realised I actually have quite a few dies that are still patiently waiting to be used, and so had a few ideas for making a card. My main problem was the sentiment though as I couldn't find any suitable paper or dies in my stash.  Thankfully I remembered I had a box with odd embellishments in the cupboard and found some chipboard sentiments I got free with a crafting mag a long time ago.  I ended up making this card at the very last minute as it was a hectic week, so it is completely different from what I had originally planned, but I'm happy to have another Christmas card done.

Here is my card:

Reverse Confetti Cuts - Branch Out
Lawn Fawn Cuts - Stitched Hillside Borders
MFT Die-namics - Single lined Stitched Rectangel Frame Stax
Memory Box Dies - Crystalline Border
Provocraft Cuttlebug - Snowfall Embossing Folder
Simon Says Stamp - Smoke Cardstock
Doodlebug Design Sprinkles - Ladybug Assortment
Ranger Stickles - Diamond
Felt - Generic Felt Sheets from Dollar Shop 
Sentiment - Chipboard 

I created the trees with felt I recently bought from the local dollar shop that was closing down - it was a bargain! It's the first time I've used felt on a card and I love the added texture.  I added some enamel dots to the trees to decorate them. The background scene was very simple to put together, and I added some stickles for some glistening snow and a few die cut snowflakes. The sentiment is a chipboard piece that I got as a freebie with a crafting mag a long time ago.

I would also like to enter this card into the following challenges:
Thanks for popping by,
