I ♥ Promarkers - Christmas Trees

Hope everyone is having a lovely week :)

Now this weeks theme on I ♥ Promarkers is Christmas Trees, and we are sponsored by Stampeezee who are offering our lucky winner a £10 voucher to spend online.  Fabulous prize!

I loved colouring in this little urchin angel by Mo Manning, and knew just what kind of feel I wanted on this card.  My only problem was that I dont appear to have very many christmas papers that are not 'in your face christmassy', so I had a good mooch through my stash and found these vintagey papers by K&Co in a 108 page massive pad.

I hand stitched the papers, hand beaded the borders and used a mix of Spellbinder, Marianne and Nellie Snellen dies.  The sentiment was found in a crafty bitz bag and I added stickles, glitter and adhesive pearls to the trees and corners.

I am entering this card in the below competitions:

Bunny Zoes Crafts - Anything christmas with pearls
Totally Gorjuss - Christmas traditions
Stamptacular Sunday - Punch it
Truly Scrumptious - Vintage/Pearls
Dream Valley - Stitching
Sparkles Forum Christmas - Angels
Deep Ocean Challenge - Vintage
C.R.A.F.T Challenge - Cute
Totally Papercrafts - Victorian
Crafter's Companion - Let it snow, let it snow, let it snow
Do You Stack Up - Inspired by song - Hark the Herald Angels Sing.  My favourite christmas carol ever, it reminds me of victorian carolers singing in the streets, snow, angels and good old Charlie Dickens.

Thanks so much for looking at my blog today, I will be back tomorrow with another card ;)

I like the sprinkling of snow & the way you've accentuated that by using beads & perals on you die cuts. She really looks like a little Dickensian character too. I think your vintage papers are very apt& I like the way the pattern in that brown one is highlighted by the bordering & the swirly pieces of your corners.

Okay, now I really am angry. I don't see how I missed all this work. I looked at my blog feed and some of your work came up, but not all of it. So I am totally disappointed. This is AWE-MAZING. Love the die cuts and the stitiching. Just beautiful.
