Ribbon scraps

This card won't be everyones cup of tea as i have used black and white for this Christmas card but i quite like it. It's a very simple card and a great way to use up ribbon scraps. The card i have used is a 'skinny' so it's narrower than a DL card.

Not the best photo as the sun is shining through every bit of my conservatory making my pics a bit dark!!

While i'm here i will shar a pic or two of my Christmas tree. Very un-traditional this

The tree is 6.5ft slimline cream tree. You can see in this photo that the kids have already been re-arranging some of the decorations leaving a bit of a gap in the middle on the top!! Never mind i'll just have to buy more to totally fill

You can see all the colours i have gone for better in this photo!!

This flower is a gorgeous turquoise colour and is made of feathers.

Also had to show you this flower. Again i just LOVE the colours - a rich deep purple with turquoise and deep blue.

Right i'm off to re-arrange my trimmings (again!!)

Thanks for looking. x

LOVE your tree Emma, the only word is sumptuous! And I think you're wrong about your card, how could it not be anyone's cup of tea? So elegant in B&W, and still obviously Christmassy :D

The B&W Xmas card is so elegant and the stitching around the edges just brings everything together. Hugs from Desire
