Card Sketch Challenge #8

Lots of excuses why this is so late but rather than list them here I'm just going to say - Sorry - and post it now.

Here is my Blog Card Sketch Challenge #8:

I know it looks really easy and it is. You just need to make a card that features a tree as it's main focal piece.

The tree may be stamped, paper pieced or cut out of your card. Just 2 layers for the base is all that's required (solid or patterned paper - your choice) and you may embellish at will!

But wait - there's a catch! You can't just slap together 2 pieces of paper and add a tree - what would be the fun in that?

You will get an extra entry for each embellishment you add to your card. For example, if you add ribbon, sewing and bling to your card that's a total of 4 entries! The more entries you have the better chance you have at the prize! You get the idea?

Please add the link for your card to this post by NOON on Friday, November 16th. I'll draw a name from the entries by that night and post the winner.

The prize is this package to get you started on your tag making for the Holidays.

Included is a package of IKEA tags (36 tags in 3 sizes and 3 colours), 2 packages of American Traditional Designs Snowflake Rubons and 4 yards of fun fibres to "fancy up" your tags.

I'll post my card tomorrow!
