THE "Trim a Tree" Challenge @ Wink Wink Ink

The Wink Wink Ink Challenge Blog is running a "Trim a Tree" Contest. The tree image is supplied and all you have to do is to trim it! How much fun is that, and how easy-peasy???!!!

I printed the image after I had recoloured it to purple - YES! purple! cos I wanted to break traditions - PURPLE AND PINK - girly colours for a girly Christmas Tree!

I then set about decorating my tree, and you guessed it - out came the sequins, beads and rhinestones! I sewed them all on until the tree was suitably blinged, added a cute polka dot organza bow, a stick-on sentiment (very blinged!) and added a marbled paper background with a purple border.

Don't you just love the angel on the top of the tree?
