Atlantic Hearts 242 - Swirly Christmas Tree

It's a very simple sketch this week at Atlantic Hearts - perfect for those last minute Christmas cards! 
I decided to stay very close to the sketch this week - and finish my LAST Christmas card as well - what a relief! 

I used a very old Close To My Heart stamp - embossed it using Willow Pigment ink and clear embossing powder. I did the same thing using Cranberry Pigment ink and clear embossing powder and then cut out the tiny birds and glued them onto the tree. I made a frame using two stitched border dies and then using Silver Shimmer trim and two grey ribbons, created the lines for the background. Such an easy card to create! 

Come and join us at Atlantic Hearts and show us how you interpret the sketch shown above. You have until Sunday night to link up your project!
