SKETCH WEDNESDAY AT THE OUTLAWZ

This is the sketch for Wednesday, 13 September challenge at The Outlawz: but I rotated it a quarter turn to the left and made this card:



To make it I used a piece of DP from a now out of business South African Company, added some gold stars (which are about 8 years old, didn't stick too well anymore so I had to use more glue! LOL) and three inked triangles of kraft/mtini board (the back of an ice cream cone box) - That's it! CLEAN AND SIMPLE, quick to make!  I think this is a great idea for all those Christmas card we need to make at the end of the year - all that can be changed is the DP and the colour of the trees, although I must admit I LOVE this vintage variation though!

I would like to enter my card in the following challenges:
