Alphabet Challenge Blog

F is for foilage
For my DT card over on the Alphabet Challenge Blog - Well I just love making these origami trees! Made a larger one from some backing paper with leaves on from my stash. Made another stepper card & layered up with some copper coloured card from a paper pack I bought from a pound shop! Decided the tree needed some decoration so threaded some beads then draped them around my tree & placed a star gem on top. Stamped some Christmas images, holly wreath, bauble & present using some free stamps from Papercraft Inspirations. Coloured in using ProMarkers & gelly roll pens. OH said he wanted this one for his Mum so made a sentiment from some peeloffs.
