Bah! Humbug Challenge #7 - Trees

If Blogger is playing nicely, this message should post automatically before I've arrived back in Bonnie Fife after my little adventure with Ann and Irene.
Can't believe we will have survived a whole week without the internet ... but hopefully we 3 'Humbuggers' will have had a fabulous week of fun together and be just about ready to return to normal life, our families and our routines.
That does, of course, mean it's back to our Bah! Humbug! weekly challenges, which thankfully is a nice easy one - TREES.
The wire tree embellishment used on my card was recycled from our Christmas Crackers in 2008 ... I knew I would use it eventually! 
I really wanted to keep the card simple so have just overlaid the wire tree with silicon glue onto one of the larger trees cut from the Dovecraft Christmas Blues background paper.  This was then matted onto silver mirri card and cut around with scallop scissors, before mounting onto square panels of the same background paper, silver mirri card and green cardstock. 
I wasn't sure whether I wanted to add ribbon or a sentiment so have left it 'naked' for the time being.  It will be easy to add either -
OR BOTH - before sending.
If you'd like to see what my fellow 'Humbuggers' have been up to for this challenge, then pop over for a look see and please feel free to share your own  Christmas tree card or project with us by leaving a link in our comments section. 
We look forward to being inspired by your fabulous creations.
