This is a scheduled post as I am on holidays at the moment. I will not have regular access to internet but will return any visits once I do. Sorry in advance for the delays in followup visits!
Once again it is time for the Christmas Card Club fornight theme.
Asha chose "Your Favourite Christmas Carol" as the theme this fortnight. " Oh Christmas Tree" was the inspiration for my card. I love singing that song as I decorate the tree. In fact I love to crank some assorted Christmas tunes and sing along quite loudly as I work!!!
This is another image from the stamping class at my local scrapbook store. Stamping it was like putting up a real tree...if the trunk was straight, then the top looked crooked and vice versa. I decided to go with both of them slightly off center...If you stare at the image for vertical balance you will see what I mean!
I decided to make this card totally from my scraps. The DP are both leftovers from previous cards and the strip of glittered, adhesived ribbon is a leftover scrap from a dollar store package. You probably recall this poinsettia...it has surfaced on several cards previously. I have a few packages of them as I got them on a super clearance at Michaels quite some time ago.
