One more Christmas card for my growing pile of holiday cards! Thanks to the wonderful sketch at 52 Christmas Card Throwdown this card came together quickly. Right away, I decided to rotate the sketch. I started by cutting an oval in the patterned paper, then punched the boughs for the tree. I layered the boughs over a trunk cut from brown cardstock that I inked. I added pearls and a star then finished the card with the decorative border strip, which also included a stitched strip in the center.
