Christmas tree

 Good morning, this week at Fab'n' Funky our challenge theme is

 Embellish it.

I made a Christmas card featuring a gorgeous tree stamp from Mama Elephant, it's a pretty simple design as you can see, and  similar to my previous post , but it does have a ribbon and bow to embellish it. The ribbon looks a bit grubby in the photo but I promise it isn't!  I stamped the tree with Twilight Versafine ink onto white card, blended blue Distress Ink around the edges, flicked some water around and added tiny dots with white gel pen, and placed it inside the die cut aperture.The sentiment on the little round tag is part of the same stamp set. Another quick and simple make.

Thank you for visiting

So glad to see that after I haven't been on the blogs for months that you are still making such beautiful cards. Still feeling overwhelmed with life, but I have to do some crafting for some stress relief before I hurt people, lol.
