I'm late ... I'm late ...

I almost forgot that I hadn't blogged my second card for this week's CHNC challenge 133: trees, please.

For my second card I've used the 'akv Christmas girl tree image' kindly supplied by Bugaboo Stamps - I coloured it digitally in Microsoft Paint.

I used offcuts for the background, including a piece of mirror card that had been run through the eBosser using the lovely folder that came with the machine.
