No Jingle

Hello.  Welcome.  So Mark's Finest papers want us to use die cut negatives as a mask, and I couldn't join three blokes on camels to the Craft Barn challenge cos there was no snow, and Memory Box want trees.  So I rattled through my Memory Box dies and found Frosted Christmas Tree and Tivoli Snowflake.  

So I cut Tivoli snowflake from a piece of card and sponged green ink through the negative mask.  I cut and embossed Frosted Christmas Tree, added a trunk and went round the edge with my gold pilot marker.  

Joining the fun at
Memory Box Challenge 4 - Terrific Trees
Speedy Fox and Friends Challenge 281 - Use die cut negatives as a mask 
The Craft Barn Weekly Challenge - Snowflakes/Snow 
Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge - No Designer Paper 
TTCRD Anything Goes Challenge
ABC Christmas Challenge - S is for Silent 

Well, I can tell you 5 minutes is just not long enough to make a difference.  But it does help uncover UFO's, so I shall craft on.  Hugz
