MMSC81 -- Tree Lane


Happy Tuesday, everyone.  Here's my card for the Midnight  Madness Sketch Challenge #81.  For my card today, I wanted to change things up a bit, so I went with a cozy, country Christmas look. I think this look works well with the tree image I used...  It's  from the Christmas Tree Set available from the "priscillastyles Store".  To go with the look, I incorporated some paper piecing into my design.  It's always fun to try something different, and I like how it turned out.  Hope you do too!

I will be entering my card in the following challenges:
Crazy for Challenges C4C64 -- Add circles to your card or project
Our Daily Bread (ODBDSLC38) -- Create any holiday card
CCEE Stampers (CCEE1046) -- Use buttons on your card or project

Thanks so much for stopping by.  I hope everyone has a very Happy and Blessed Thanksgiving!  Don't know about you, but I have to get a move on... lots of cleaning, errands and such to get ready for the holiday.
Supplies:  Christmas Tree Set - "priscillastyles" Store; Paper - PTI select white, generic ivory, DCWV DSP, textured red from my scrap bin, SU! crumb cake; Ink - computer, Distress Ink - antique linen; Accessories - Cuttlebug embosing folder, MS large snowflake punch,  MS ric rac border, woven hemp - JoAnn's,  button from my stash, thread SU!, dimensionals.
