Oh Christmas Tree...

I've had another little play with some of my birthday goodies, and have made a card for a few challenges: Carol's Sketch Fun (love this sketch...I'm sure I'll use it again); Dutch Dare Challenge - 'Christmas in August'; and Pile It On's 'No patterned paper' challenge. I used another of the images from the 'Holly-Jolly' set by Penny Black, and the Cuttlebug 'Stars' embossing folder. The large star was cut using a Nestie die, and the smaller ones were done using the Cuttlebug 'Snowflakes #2' die.
