Pretty Christmas Tree

Good Morning,

I'm running a bit late for my post this morning and that's because I failed creatively last night. Oh well, I still have a pretty card to show you that I made for my Monthly Card Swap. Marji provided the gorgeous paper and the pretty tree. The challenge was to create a tall card.

I find that I do love long cards but they are rather difficult to photograph. I colored the tree with Prismacolor markers and I provided the striped paper and the base of Always Artichoke. The polka dot paper under the tree is the other side of the striped paper which is from Making Memories. I love this paper!

Here's a close-up of the tree with all it's pretty ornaments. Marji sent along some very pretty brads and I added only a few of those and filled in with some other bling, as well as some stickles.

No, I am not ready for Christmas yet, but I guess I should start thinking about it.

OK I'm off the computer and to my craft table. I hope you all have a wonderful day. Have a safe and fun Halloween and don't forget to set your clocks back an hour. And we'll see you back here on Sunday for the Inktegrity Holiday blog hop. It's going to be so much fun!

Oh Marji's image and paper are wonderful! I love what you made with it, the card is balanced out so nicely with the richer traditional Christmas colors. Great job Mel! Happy hopping today! Your card is awesome, I could use a martini right about now.
