Simply a Christmas tree

The challenge for April on Christmas cards all year round was to use this photo as inspiration:


I printed out some of this pattern and then cut our the tree shape with a nestability, mounting on to gold mirror card and cutting round leaving an edge.

I've used the sketch for Papertake 67:


Papers are from my Christmas offcuts box - the far background was free with a magazine, the next paper is MME lost and found and I've also used a piece of gold foiled embossed card with holly etc. So this is another card for Pixie's crafty snippets 18.


It's also for:

Deep ocean 24: use punches/dies
Paper pretties 203: clean and simple
Phindy's Friday 103: clean & simple
Tuesday throwdown 95: use some sparkle (difficult to see, but as well as the foiled/mirror card the red stars are glittered
4 crafty chicks 87: no stamping zone
Amusing challenges (Stamped blessings): anything goes
Lollipop crafts 78: anything goes
Paper playtime 73: anything goes
Creative Mondays (always crafting) 7: anything goes
Simon says: anything goes
Make it Monday 87
Inspire me Fridays 56
