Pillar Box Tag

This is my second post today.  Click here for Winnie The Pooh!

The challenges that I participate in regularly are starting to gain on me, and I've found some new ones to enter, so a double post is in order today.

I've been bursting to use the pillar box stamp from my blog candy winnings from Jen at The Tiny Blue Butterfly (thanks again, Jen!).  Jen has come to Chrissie's rescue at Less is More while Mandi is busy with her new venture.  Coincidentally, I bought this tree stamp set from Mandi when she was having a purge of her stash.

The first challenge to prompt this tag was One Layer Wednesday, hosted this week by Karen at Snippets.  The challenge is:

Scene It....create a scene on your card 

Or tag, in my case, because the challenge at CAS-ual Fridays is to create a clean and simple gift tag.

The colour scheme is from The Play Date Cafe (although my pillar box isn't looking quite so dark as this).

And I'm also entering it into The Ribbon Girl December challenge, which is Ho Ho Ho! 

Postbox from Little Claire Designs
Trees from Words Like Honey
Happy Christmas from Dovecraft
