Christmas Trees.

Hi again, I'm back onto my Christmas cards today.....time's running out!

I used a trees stamp from Annabelle Stamps Hooo Loves Christmas set and a greeting by Stampin' Up, both stamped in Versafine Vintage Sepia ink. The trees are stamped onto a scrap of Basic Grey patterned paper.

I'm entering this card for two challenges -
Annabelle Stamps ABSC044 bling sketch challenge using the sketch below and,
CC351 Colour Challenge on Splitcoast Stampers - Kraft, White and Pizazz (green)

Other stuff used:
Annabelle Stamps - Lime Sprinkles (bling)
Cuttlebug - Swiss Dots Embossing folder
Nestabilities - Circle dies.
Stampin' Up - Kraft cardstock and word window punch
Bazzil - green cardstock
Kaisercraft - 'Be Merry' 6 x 6 paper pad.
EK Success - corner punch
Other - white organza ribbon, brown velvet braid.

It's officially the first day of summer here today, but you certainly wouldn't think so! It's been quite cold all day, I might even have to use my electric blanket again tonight! It was only a few days ago we were sweltering, I wish the weather wasn't quite so changeable! Hope you're having a great day in your part of the world, thanks for your visit!

ps. I think I'm going to colour those baubles on the trees red, it really needs a splash of something bright don't you think?
