Scary Christmas to you!


Here's one I just finished, the image is by Simply Betty and the papers are by Crafty Chaos Designs Here are the challenges:
Simply Betty 12 Days of Christmas - Day 3 use a creepy Christmas tree. I had such trouble thinking of how I could make a Christmas tree look creepy, and tried dozens of different things, none of which looked right. I almost thought I might not be able to enter this one, and then this morning I had the idea of pyramiding skulls, and I love it, lol, I know I shouldn't say that about my own stuff, but you have no idea of the time I took trying to make a standard Christmas tree look creepy, and once I'd got the idea for this one it was so easy! :D
Pattie's Creations - sketch
One Stitch At A Time - celebrate with bling
Getting Crafty with Anne - not your usual Christmas items. Lol, no actual Christmas stuff in sight here, the colours, image, papers and embellishments are all non-Christmas things ;)

Hiya Susan. Fabulous card. Love the colours and design of paper. Great image, and who would have thought to make a tree with skulls, amazing creativity. Happy crafting.
With love, Sandra xxx
