ABC Christmas Challenge - R is for...

It's time for another fun ABC Christmas Challenge...Samantha is the host, and the theme is:

'R is for Rip It'
(Include something ripped/torn on your project)

We are sponsored for this challenge by Digi Stamp Boutique:
Prize - £10 Gift Certificate!

I used ripped strips of pastel coloured card to make some simple Christmas tree shapes...layering the strips on a piece of triangular scrap of card ...allowing the bottom piece to hang over the edge. I decorated the tree with some adhesive pearls, then attached it to my card above a simple stamped sentiment (from the 'Scribbly Christmas' set by Tim Holtz for Stampers Anonymous).

It was so quick to do...I made a couple more!

I'm also entering these cards into the following challenges:

Hi Helen, These cards are amazing - what a brilliant and genius idea - I could never think of that! I struggled a bit (well - a lot)! with tearing because I am a neat freak!

Seriously though, beautiful cards
