Simply Saturday - Christmas it is!

Well, OK, I know it's not Christmas but there is snow in the forecast!  Yep it's on it's way!

I have had this little shaped card cut and ready to piece together for ages, but have not felt like crafting.

So, today as it is a miserable day outside, I am spending it in the craft room :-)

What are you up to today?

I have used this pre-coloured image from the wonderful Polkadoodles Festive Christmas collection. Couldn't resist making up a shaped card and adding a little glitter to the tree layers.

I used the shape of the pre-coloured image and created the card shape using Silhouette Design Studio software.

Couldn't resist adding some lovely papers and the wonderful sentiment to the inside of the card.

I added some layers with foam dots and inked all the edges of all the layers.

For the tree, I added another two layers and cut into the branches a little for some added texture and depth.

I am entering this card in the following challenges.

Brown Sugar Challenges - Challenge #221: Anything Goes (closes 27 Oct)

Allsorts Challenge Blog - Challenge #386: Sparkle and Shine (closes 28 Oct)

Think I am going to come up with some quick cards next for my ready to post Christmas cards :-)

Thanks for stopping by today.

Happy Crafting.
