Holly Tree

Middle of the week. :-)

Yes, my stash of Christmas cards are starting to grow. 
Today I have used this fun Holly Tree image from Cardmadfairy.  So much fun to colour with my Copic pens.  I attached some flatback pearls to finish off the tree. I have attached it to this wonderful shaped card on top of a layer of torn mulberry paper.  The inside of the card I found this lovely diamond patterned green paper and attached the vertical Merry Christmas sticker.  The off cuts of the sticker I thought nicely finished the front of the card.

Happy Wednesday everyone, a really slow day planned here.  If my teenage son gets up in time we may go in search of a suit for his up and coming graduation (November).

I would love to enter into the following challenge:

Supplies Used:
