CityGirl Buys a Christmas Tree


She's back again!  This time she's looking to buy a Christmas Tree, although she doesn't look particularly interested in any of them.  Must be all that dazzling snow putting her off.

I stamped the CityGirl image onto white card, and again onto plaid patterned paper.  I cut out the coat and paper-pieced it onto the image, and fussy cut.  I drew some shoes on her and coloured them with Distress Inks.

I inked up the trees with Distress Inks, spritzed and stamped, then cut a strip of matching plaid to ground the image and added the sentiment from the Holiday Artsy set.

I'm entering this into Simon Says Wednesday Challenge - Winter Inspiration


AAA Cards - Plaid Christmas


and Papertake Weekly - Last Christmas Card
