CCAYR September: keep it krafty

Please click here for a chance to win a 2-day ticket for the Big Stamp & Scrapbooking Show at Alexandra Palace 20-21 September

This is my first design card for Christmas cards all year round September challenge: keep it krafty. Please click on the link to see the lovely krafty designs of the rest of the team ... and we hope you will join in our challenge with your krafty Christmas creations.

The paper is Bazzill Basics 'Timeless', mounted on to a kraft card blank. The trees were stamped on to kraft paper using stamps from Clearly Besotted 'modern Christmas' collection - the sentiment was from that collection too. The felt buttons (lovely touchy feely) were from Poundland. I added gems to the tops of the trees for a little bit of bling.
