Ornamented Tree Merry Christmas Z Fold Card - 52 {C}CT March Colour Challenge

We've got a colour challenge for you at 52 {C}CT this week.  Please choose at least 3 of the colours from the graphic and some neutrals are allowed too.


For my card I opted to go with the dark blue, deep aqua and the red using SU! Midnight Muse, Bermuda Bay and Rose Red colours.  I made a 5 3/4" square Z fold card and adhered Rose Red patterned paper to the back panel.  I stamped the tree from the SU! Season of Friendship set, stamped the bird and added a curved silver glitter border as a snow bank.  I stamped tiny ornaments from the SU! Merry Minis set, punched them out and popped them up on the tree.  I added the sentiment, punched a circle for the top of the tree and popped up a silver star.   I attached the ribbon and the punched circles with the silver glitter snowflakes and added a tiny gem to each ornament to complete the front.

Here's the greeting panel inside the card - I thought an ornament suspended from the sentiment would be a nice touch! 

Here's the envelope flap.

Now it's over to you, please do join us this week at 52 {C}CT and make a Christmas card for our colour challenge, I'd love to see your creations!

This is one of my favorite stamps Ruth and I LOVE how you hung those bitty ornaments on the bare branches. Way to update a retired set. Terrific idea :o)

PS thanks for your note on my blog today. I can just see you in that outfit - what a hoot that must have been. Hugs D
