1st Christmas card of 2016!

Evening everyone thought I'd join in with 52 Christmas Card Throwdown challenge and get ahead for this year! This weeks challenge is a sketch and this is my take on it:


I've used a Tattered Lace Victorian die acrosse the middle, not sure where the tree is from and I cut the frame to be off set. The sentiment is a freebie.


I'm also entering it into CHNC challenge which is asking for a touch of red.

I really like the pretty lace die cut border across the middle and the super simple tree. Nicely done. Thanks so much for playing along with our sketch challenge at 52CCT this week!

Love how clean this looks. I wouldn't have thought to use a intricate border like this, but it adds a touch of detail that's just right. The offset frame is great too - now I know how to avoid fiddling with getting dies lined up!
