Trees - Bah Humbug!!!

It's been a few days since I have posted anything but things have been pretty hectic recently. A group of us went to Farnborough on Friday to the craft show and had a great time but were glad we didn't go on Sunday as it was cancelled due to bad weather. Wouldn't have been happy bunnies travelling all the way from Somerset to Farnborough to find it wasn't on!!!

Anyway, just had time to join in the Bah Humbug challenge which is trees.

I have used my Penny Black "Fantasy" for the main tree image which was embossed onto SU cardstock. I then added various gems and a ribbon from my stash. Main image was matted and layered onto more SU cardstock and each corner was punched with my new Martha Stewart eyelet lace corner punch with is part of a Punch around the Page set. I have used a 6" square cream card as the base which I covered with a piece of My Mind's Eye Christmas glitter stack and, rather than making it a "normal" easel card, I have made it into a diagonal easel card by scoring the front of the card diagonally from top left to bottom right corner. The sentiment was computer generated and I used my SU oval and scalloped oval punches.

Thanks for looking.
