Festive Fridays 7-8

Good morning and welcome to another edition of Festive Fridays. If you are new to us, sit back, grab a cup of coffee, relax and enjoy some wonderful Christmas Cards. Yes, I did say Christmas...Festive Fridays will be every other Friday with samples of Christmas cards. This way, you can be making your cards all year long and you will avoid the mad rush when you could be enjoying the Christmas Season. You should have just come from Debbie. If you stumbled upon this post you can go back to Terri and start at the beginning. There is also a complete list of the Festive Friday hop on the left sidebar under the Festive Fridays blinkie in case you get lost along the way.

This was super simple.  I used the Christmas cart on my gypsy and cut the tree as a background at 5 inches in plain green cardstock.  Then I cut the layer in a glittery paper also at 5 inches.  I used scraps for the background and added a bit of lace.  The tree is pop dotted to the card base and embellished with flat back pearls.  The sentiment came from a Christmas paper pack and fit nicely. 

I hope you like my Festive Friday card and hope to see you back in two weeks for another christmas card.  Now head on over to Angela and check out what she has for you.
