And More Decorations!

At risk of saying that I've made another Christmas card with more Christmas tree decoration, well, I have and here it is! Over on Jingle Belles Rock this week, the challenge is a double one as it uses the sketch from Sketchy Thursday, so one card equals two challenges!

And Sketchy Thursday is one challenge I'd not come across before.... Fatal as you know I'll be back as I do like sketches! Anyway, I've used some very lovely felt off white card as my card base, added a 4.5x6.5 sheet of sparkly card (Dovecraft Noel cardstock) - another of the bargains I bought in the January sales! The tree decoration is from Tesco's (on the 3 for 2 offer so I bought 3 different packs - seemed rude not to!) and the organza burgundy ribbon is from my stash. I've added a few gems to the top of the card. For closure. Cos it needed it.

So there you have it. I need to get out more and stop using Christmas tree decorations on my cards. Is it just me who gets excited when in a shop and realising that the decorations are flat and light enough to be added to cards? Ah, it is just me. Ah well!

  • Backing paper: Dovecraft 4.5x6.5 Noel pack
  • Embellishment: Tesco's Christmas tree decoration
  • Everything else: My stash


  1. This is a beautiful card!!!

  2. nope, it's not just you! :) i spot things EVERYWHERE and think, "that would be GREAT on a card!" (also i suspect if you keep making such gorgeous cards with your found finery, you'll inspire EVERYONE to want to check their decorations for things that could work!)

    i ♥LOVE♥ that gorgeous star...especially paired with the beautiful sheer ribbon. the colors are fabulous as well! totally awesome card once again!
