Rudolph Days February 2015

Two new followers to welcome today.  Firstly, Zoe was introduced to me online this week by Di from Pixies's Crafty Workshop, when she realised that  Zoe and I support the same football team.  After visiting each others blogs, Zoe and I actually met at the Bristol Rovers' ground two days ago during half time.  I must admit that outside the Ladies was not the most perfect venue to meet for the first time, especially in the rain, but it was lovely to meet a crafty blogger in real life.....and what a lovely lady she is!  Visit her blog CraftyGasheadZo to find out more about her and her crafty projects.  Secondly, Connie of Crafty Home Cottage has lots of different crafty ideas, especially for home decor, so I hope you have time to visit both Zoe's and Connie's blogs.

Now for today's card, my second card of the year for the Rudolph Days monthly challenge.  
I thought I'd go with dark blue and white for this card. The two dies I used are both Memory Box dies - 'Orchard Tree Frame' and 'Frosted Christmas Tree'.  The sentiment is stamped with a Versafine Majestic Blue ink pad and the sentiment and the Christmas tree are attached with foam pads to give some dimension.  

I would like to enter my card for the following challenges:
