I punched a large oval out of my textured Crumb Cake card stock and used it as a guide before stamping my tree on the card base. The textured panel was then stuck over the top. I stamped the tree on various scraps of designer paper and cut the pieces out; these were then glued to the stamped tree and I allowed the leafy sections to overlap my aperture. Here's a close-up:
That little heart was punched out of Just Add Cake paper with my ever useful owl punch - the leafy bits of the tree were from that range too. I liked the stripy trunk - that's from Mocha Morning, a gorgeous range of speciality papers with flocking and gold details. I got so carried away with my paper snips that I cut a sentiment out too!

It's been a dodgy few days on the sporting front: First sports day was cancelled on Friday due to adverse weather conditions (which I was pretty relieved about actually, as picnicking on a soggy field in a gale watching my son lose his trainers in the mud isn't really my thing!); then my oldest son lost his tennis match yesterday (which he was pretty disappointed about for about a minute and a half!); and then the England football team went out of the European Cup after losing a penalty shoot out (although to be honest, Italy really did deserve to win.) Oh well, back to normality!
I've got lots of fun projects to show you this week so do pop back and see!
