Jingle Belles Card 28

Just a quick post ... 
Firstly a huge Thank You to the girls over at WaltzingMouse for awarding me a Top Mouse this week ... I am absolutely thrilled and honoured ... A beautiful start to my day...
I have quickly made my 28th card for the Jingle Belles challenge ... (I'll be missing next weeks') ... and this week the challenge is to use up your leftovers .. any scraps that you have ... Well I have tons of scraps I can tell you ... here is my card ...


as you can see I made an origami Christmas tree from 4 squares of papers from my scraps and sugared it with glitter ...
The background paper is a piece from Prima Botanicals ... and the red dottie paper from one of the Pixie Dust Paperie Christmas kits  ... I took a scrap of card and painted it with TH distress stains (Weathered Wood) to adhere my tree to ... and again painted another scrap with TH (Vintage photo) for the tree trunk ...


The tag is a Bo Bunny sticker adhered to a scrap of card ... and not sure if you can notice ... but I even used distress stain on one of my ribbons to give the two toned effect .. a sparkly button ... some twine and it's all done ... Have to go ... have a lovely day 

Till soon
