Harry & the Tree

For my card today, I have used the lovely simplistic layout from Mo’s Digital Challenge. Now, whilst I know that the image is certainly one of Mo’s, I had all but forgotten I had this one. Shock, horror I know….it was bereft of all my other Mo images, hidden away in another folder. Don’t remember when I must have put it there, or why, but at least it can ‘go and live’ with the other Mo’s now. I have a very good friend who ADORES pigs, and this card will be perfect for her Christmas card this year.

Whilst I have used the sketch as the base, I have added the extra dimension of this fab card shape. I know, I know, I have used it before, and not too long ago,…but I like it! So I hope you do to.

Having coloured the image in with Promarkers, (though the star on top of the tree and the paper it was supposedly cut from near the tree base was silver gel pen for sparkle), I drew myself a few baubles, one of which was put through my text editor to get the short, but sweet message following the spherical shape I was after. One of the baubles has also been paper-pieced with co-ordinating paper before Promarkers gave it depth at the edges.
Right, I think that is all for this one, though this posting looks rather short for me, so I am sure I must have left something out!! Hope you like seeing my card as much as I have loved creating it.
