A Silver Tree

Hi there

I hope you are feeling well this damp Tuesday morning.  It's a Work-from-Home day for hubby, and as we share the study it's a case of keeping my crafting noise to a minimum while I try to get to grips with my Christmas crafting.  Wouldn't it be nice if the various crafting machines we use were just a bit quieter.

Today's card is made using the November LO from The Sketch File
I've used a bit of artistic license with this, but look closely and you can still see the sketch - or I hope you can!  I cut an aperture for one of the rectangles and the tree takes the place of the other one
The Sketch File, November 2016

Aperture cut with scalloped rectangles from the Tonic Nested Rectangles - a mix of scalloped and plain dies
The green printed paper behind the aperture is from the Retro Christmas download collection from YourPaperStash 
Lovely, isn't it?  There are a few other more geometric collections in the same colours; which really add a lot of variety.
The tree is a Memory Box die from a couple of years ago
Small stars and Snowflakes; Cheery Lynn Snowflake plate,
 Joanna Sheen Starry border
The tiny sentiment circle is backed with a MS Snowflake punched in glitter card, and a scalloped circle from the Spellbinders Nesties set

That's it - short and sweet in the hope that I can actually manage to get through a bit of my to-do list today!
Thank you so much for taking the time to pop by - I ghope you'll leave a message too, or is that being greedy? :)

Gorgeous card Kathy. I totally agree with the noise of machines, my Son and Daughter both work night-shifts, and I try not to use them, when they are sleeping...so work gets backed up a little..hugs xxx
