Make My Monday week 28

At MMM this week Jacqueline would like us to use  
RED RIBBON on our Seasonal Anything Goes Projects.
Here's mine.
I've used the tree from an Artemio set, one of my favourite set of Christmas stamps, especially the tree.
 I stamped directly onto plain white card stock with  Adirondacks Meadow, stamping off onto spare card first to to achieve a lighter shade for two of the trees. I added icicles Stickles  to ground the trees then with my finger lightly brushed each tree with a tiny amount of stickles. I used Christmas Red Stickles on the tree in the foreground. A tiny sliver of the Icicle Stickles was added to the edges of the white card which was mounted onto slightly larger red card then mounted to the right of the green card 14.5 x 14.5cm. The red ribbon and silver cord was attached to the left of the card before it was mounted onto a white card  finally I added a little "shrinkie tree". The sentiment is from See-D's Holiday Words and Sayings... such a useful set :D
 Pop along to the Make My Monday challenge blog to see all the fabulous inspiration from the talented DT .

Every one is busy at this time of year rushing hither and thither doing six things at once... so take time out, sit and enjoy your favourite cuppa (black coffee for me) close your eyes and  B R E A T H E there don't you feel better? lol
 take care see you soon

What a lovely card using that great tree stamp with the touches of glitter. I like the shrink one on your red ribbon too. I hope the decorations actually stay on your tree with your lovely kitty in the same room. Maybe you need a playpen (not for the cat but you could put it around the tree LOL!!). I will try to BREATHE and relax with my favourite cuppa - also black coffee so great minds think alike.

This is fabulous Sue. I love what you did with the lovely tree (I have this set too) and the little shrinky one looks great as an embellishment.
