Pink Christmas trees.................

are the theme over at SCD this week...well, thats how I (the speed reader) read it, but, I think its a pink card with a Christmas tree!! but, its much the same, isn't it?? anyway, the theme has been set by the lovely and talented Gez....

Here's my effort for this week:-


its inspired by the fact that my Hubby, when asked for his opinion on a card I've recently created for an up and coming event, replied with "and what else can you throw at it?" I've never thought of my creations as being "overloaded". So, I've gone for the simplistic touch. I've used a technique outlined by a forum buddy, Kaz, on the BS challenge site....completed the task in pink ink, outlined the edges of my card with a black pen and stamped the sentiment in pink ink....finito!

Do pop on over to the SCD blog - you'll be totally blown away with all of the cards, but, Pia, who is our GD for this month has created something rather special - so go and have a look.

Have a good weekend bloggers....
