KISSmas tree

Hello lovely people,

It's time for a new challenge at In The Pink and our theme this month is...

KISS
(that's Keep It Sweet & Simple!)

I really haven't been making many cards lately that could be considered KISS although it is a style I love.  So, I did something completely different for me and used up lots of scraps of DP as well!


I rolled each paper strip quite tightly so the tree is quite sturdy and popped the star and pot on foam pads then sprinkled on a few pearls and enamel dots.
The teeny letters are from a stamp set that came free with a magazine and they have come in very handy a few times now!


Card recipe;
DP: Lost & Found - Madison Avenue - MME
Bakers twine: The Ribbon Girl
Corrugated card/pearls/enamel dots: from stash

If you haven't already done so then do pop over to In The Pink and check out the gorgeous creations from the rest of the Pink Ladies.

Thanks for visiting and I really appreciate any comments that you leave,
