Iris Tree at Christmas

Hello again everybody,

My kitty wants to say hi too - she is sitting here yowling away merrily in her senility (I think it will drive me senile before my time)! She has definitely settled down again now, and the hubby even bathed her the other day whilst I was at work! lol.

Now time for some crafty creations. Firstly my new Christmas card -an Iris Folded Christmas Tree!
 I took a vintage style metallic base card with an embossed border detail and cut three equal sized triangles to make the Christmas Tree. I then used vintage style papers from the Papermania Christmas Tidings and a Jennifer Ellory paper stack. I did not have a template for this so I just chose to stick the pieces at a slight angle to the edge of the triangles. To finish I added the sentiment panel.

I would like to enter this card for the following challenges:
CraftyHazelnut #293 Vintage
Winners - please take this to share on your blog
Winter Wonderland - Use Gold or Silver/Embossed Background
Jingle Belles - We THREE kings (three papers and three triangles)

 Here are the next 4 designs on my advent calender - totally 11hr45!
So far - only 8 more to go!

And here are some more critter pictures!
 Ringlet posing
 Not sure what these flowers are??
 Bee visiting another flower that I do not know lol
 And in white
 Meadow Brown enjoying the sunshine
 Silver y moth in the sunshine

Blue Damselfly - Common Blue I think.

Thank you for looking,

Hugz Tinz
