Christmas Tree Fairy Lights

It's Theme week at 52 {Christmas} Card Throwdown and this week we want to see Christmas Cards featuring - FAIRY LIGHTS

Now I have to admit that I struggled with this challenge - whose idea was it to do Fairy Lights??? ...... err - that would be me DOH!
However Louise to the rescue, she has dashed round with her Pennant Parade stamp set and matching punch and this is what I have come up with

You can just see my multi coloured lights on my trees - perhaps you can see them better in this close up

I have used the brand new In Colours for this card: Gumball Green, Summer Starfruit and Raspberry Ripple. My fairy lights were coloured with last years In Colours. Both the trees and the scalloped edges were punched using the fabulous matching punch for this set.
My sentiment has been heat embossed in gold - this is a brilliant stamp set with loads of really useful sentiments in a gorgeous funky font.

Stamps: Pennant Parade, Sassy Salutations.
Inks: Gumball Green, Summer Starfruit, Raspberry Ripple. Markers: Cherry Cobbler, Pool Party, Island Indigo, Wisteria Wonder, Calypso Coral. Versamark.
Card stock: Naturals White.
Accessories: Pennant Punch, Gold embossing powder
All the above items can be ordered through me and delivered direct to you door - details at the top of the blog.

Now it's time for you to hop on over to the blog and take a look at all the other fabulous dt work including that of our Guest DT Birgit - she's got prizes too!
See you soon - Jacqueline xx
