Rosie Dees challenge

Another scheduled post, this time for Sunday afternoon and a new challenge theme at Rosie Dees with a fab prize on offer from The Cutting Cafe, so do go check it out. Also the reveal of my card from this week.........and apologies to everyone and especially my teamies at Rosie Dees for their understanding as I have been unable to create anything for this weeks challenge due to ill health. But I am on the mend and will be back next week !

The theme for this card was Stars and Stripes. My stripes are in the form of DP from Daisy Bucket, two Christmas trees simply cut from brown cardstock and a pale blue pearlescent and run through the Bug using a swirly folder. A border punched with Martha Steward Embossed Zigzag, some velvet ribbon, a pearl ribbon slide and some star gems on the trees. Two stars atop the trees are from a punch and glittered with Stickles. The greeting is Penny Black 3995F.
