There's something magical about Christmas...

Good morning blogging friends and a happy Wednesday,
Wow just think of it...this time next week all the rush will be over and done for another year. We are having a short week as we had a holiday yesterday, so of course the days are a bit mixed up...but it is Wednesday and it is challenge #57 at Digistamps4Joy with the theme..."Christmas Fantasy"...there's something magical about Christmas.
This challenge will run for 3 weeks, giving the DT some time off over Christmas, so after the rush give yourselves a bit of time off and come and join in with the fun. Have a look at the challenge blog
as both teams are showing their creations this week, so lots of inspiration.
This is the card I made for this challenge:

 
It is a T-bar card, which is really so easy to do, and here is a side view of it
 
 
The image is called Front door Christmas Tree and you can find it  HERE.
I coloured it with distress inks, and put in the brick effect as a background.For the tree I used flower soft, with some gems inbetween
The Designer paper is from a pad of Winter papers by My Mind's eye.
The sentiment is from a set of Papermania stamps from last Christmas.

I am entering the following challenges:
Crafty Boots chalenge...Christmas
Eureka stamps...Christmas spirit
Forever friends...Christmas cards
Kaboodle Doodles challenge#150
...Christmas/anything goes
Paper Pretties challenge #70...Create a Christmas creation

LEJ designs challenge  #34...Santa's coming to town

I hope you all have a wonderful week, just stop for a minute and put your feet up. Have a wonderful holiday season and a Blessed Christmas. Take care and be back soon.

Love Ursula

Oh wow Ursula, what a great design. Loving the T-bar. Does the card fold flat? You have coloured the image beautifully and that tree looks so real.
