Holiday Spirit

Friday Sketchers is offering some fab Christmas digi-stamps to one lucky winner this week. Even if they weren’t offering such a wonderful prize, I knew that I wanted to use the fantastic sketch that they have this week. I tried a new technique (paper-piecing) on this card and while I am pretty happy with the paper-piecing that I did, I’m not 100% convinced that I love the card. See for yourself:

I will say that I love the image and expect to use it quite often as we approach the holiday. I am thinking that I didn’t stick with my initial instincts which said to use silver thread to embellish the paper pieced tree – kind of like tinsel. Also, even though I love the printed paper, I originally pictured a red and green plaid in the background. Maybe it is just because I pictured something different when I was putting the card together in my mind. What do you think?
