Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge - Christmas Trees

The theme for this week's Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge as chosen by the Secret Crafter

'Christmas Trees'

I chose this fab Christmas tree image from the 'Holly-Jolly Christmas' set by Penny Black...I love the expression on the cat's face! I watercoloured it to match the 'Eskimo Kisses' papers (by BasicGrey), adding some sparkle to the baubles using a Sakura Stardust pen. The sentiment stamp is by Paper Make-Up, and as the papers and image are quite busy, I've kept the embellishments quite low-key, adding some pieces of card candy and a simple bow.

The rest of the design team have created some cracking projects to inspire you...check them out at the Secret Crafter Saturday Challenge.
