More Christmas Trees

Here is the card I initially made for Susie and Vicki's Challenge "Christmas Trees", I was just waiting on a sketch that didn't have a circle, so was happy yesterday when the sketch appeared at Midnight Madness Challenge, It also fits the D for Decorations at ABC Christmas Challenge. Digital Tuesday (all about animals). This is of course "Roocat" from Prairie Fairy Designs all decked out in his Christmas duds. Now I realize I use the same colours as my previous tree, but hey it's Christmas and I love green and red! I am so committed to this Christmas Challenge I'll have my 50 cards done without breaking a sweat. Well if the summer sun doesn't pull me away from it. Hope you have a great day!!!!

Oh this is just so cute! love it its ACE! As Lorraine said the sketches are a guide! I used to get quite hung up on doing it just as it was and then read on a few blogs that you can change the shapes and rotate them too!
