Christmas Trimmings

Another cold wet day here in Adelaide, but nice and warm in Shirley's house where Sandy and I went for our Sunday workshop, chat, afternoon tea and a special treat as afterwards we all went to Paper Flourish - and need I say all our purses were a little lighter when we left!!!

Tonight's card is my entry for this weeks Less is More Challenge.


We are now onto the fourth week in our rotation of challenges, so once more it's the turn for a recipe and this week it's a 
BUTTON OR RIBBON 
(or plurals thereof)

My card is based on a stamp I borrowed from Shirley, I cut the stamped ribbons off and stuck the tree down onto white card, I then sewed some ribbon into bows, stuck them down with sticky dots where the original stamped bows were and then stuck buttons in the middle.
Sentiment is form SU Contempo Christmas stamped in SU Real Red.
I embossed a line down each side but it is a little hard to see on the scan also it has scanned with a shadow.

I always think that cards look their best when photographed rather than being scanned... they seem to lose some of their vitality that way.
This is a fabulous card... I would almost like to see another branch at the bottom too... beautiful ribbons!
Thanks so much for joining us.
