Bah! Humbug! Challenge 33

Hard to believe there's only 4 short months left until Christmas ... in fact, only 119 sleeps until generous jolly Santa makes his annual visit!   Hope you've been good this year so that all your Christmas dreams come true!
Our Bah! Humbug! Challenge this week is to use CHARMS and I dug deep into my stash and found a teeny weeny tree charm tucked away in an embellishment box.  
That set the theme and was perfect to go with one of the gorgeous black felt trees I recently 'inherited' from my friend Isa ... who's moving to a new flat next month and offered me first dibs on her craft stash!    She didn't need to ask twice and I took it all for a bargain basement price.
Some dots of Icicle Stickles make pretty tree decorations and add a wee touch of sparkle.  I had some embossed black card and a square of foiled card decorated with swirls and snowflakes left over from another project, so simply married them together.  The charm is hung from some sparkly black and silver twine and a silver embellished greeting finishes the front.
Ann and Irene have their own 'charming' projects to show you so pop over to Bah! Humbug! and take a peek!
Coincidently, both Rainbow Lady's Challenge and Creative Card Crew have 'Sparkle and Shine' as their theme this week, so I'm hoping this card has enough of both to qualify.
Hope you all enjoy a Wonderful Weekend ... wherever you are and whatever you are doing xxx
