Trimming the Tree

At least her dress is the same colour as the tree so maybe that's why the lights are on her dress!

I am so far behind already this month!  This post and another one should have been posted on the 1st May and I'm only just getting to them now.  I hope it's not an indication of how the month is going to go!

Anyway, time for another challenge at CHNC Extra - a chance to work on your Christmas cards throughout the year.   This month, I have created a card using JJ Calendar Months - December.  To have a look at my feloow DT members created and to find the linky for the challenge, click here.

I have used a paper from Kaisercraft that has a top and bottom border of Christmas Lights.  The image from Bugaboo Stamps has been coloured with copic markers and then die-cut using a Marianne's die.  I added some grosgrain ribbon from American Crafts which i embellished with some clear rhinestones.

I would like to enter my card into the following challenges:
CHNC - Female
Penny's paper - Anything But Square (rectangle and oval)
Inspiration Destination - Anything Goes
Winter Wonderland - Clean and Simple


  1. A delightful, fun card for design inspiration for CHNC challenge extra for May, Suze (would also fit my CHNC challenge 227 this week if you'd like to enter it there) x
