black christmas tree

Hi everyone!
It's been horrible wet weather here for 48 hours but it's finally stopped and the sun has been out!
I madea quick card this morning based on a sketch by Jen at sketch saturday. Here it is:

The tree die is a magazine freebie and the papers are DCWV. Stamp is magazine freebie and the stars are a memorry box die. I was inspired also by stars and stripes at holly jolly christmas.

I liked the colours so much that I decided to do 2! This is the 2nd which is almost identical except I decided to add a bit more!

This is the inside of both.
Hope you like it , and thank you for may comments you may make.
I am entering this in the following:


  1. Love that tree die, how great for a freebie! Thanks for joining us at Sketch Saturday :)

  2. That scrolly tree is gorgeous! Great cards! :)

  3. Oh my gosh - I would never have guessed how beautiful a black tree would be! I love the blue stars too. Fabulous non-traditional Christmas card. thanks for joining us this week at 52CCT!

  5. I really like the pretty Christmas tree - the monochromatic colours are fab! Thanks so much for playing along with 52CCT this week!!

  6. Oh the white and black is certainly a stand out and the lovely stars on the tree. Think I prefer the second card. I too have that tree die but yet to use it.
