Tree of Hearts

I think the recent problem with Blogger making commenting very slow, unless there was a pop-up box, seems to have been resolved.  I've changed my comment section back to 'embedded', as it's the only way to be able to reply to a comment.

I was thrilled to be invited to be a Guest Designer for the February Happy Little Stampers Christmas Challenge.  The theme is Anything Goes with the optional twist of Hearts.

I made the tree with punched hearts, decorated with Nuvo Crystal Drops in red and gold.  The pot was a punched flowerpot, with part of the bottom cut of to make it more of a pot shape.  I added a strip of gold card and a punched gold bow.  The tree was matted and layered on Sue Wilson 'Double Stitched Hexagons'.   A computer generated sentiment and punched gold stars finished off my card.  

The challenge is a good way of getting ahead with your Christmas cards for 2018, as well as having the chance to win a gift voucher for Happy Little Stampers.  I'm looking forward to seeing all your beautiful creations.
