UnstampaBelles Challenge #5 - November - Trees

Challenge #5 for UnstampaBelles is up and running.

Here is a quick recap of the rules:

No Stamps! This means no rubber stamps, no digital stamps, clipart or line art which includes pre-coloured versions. Inclusive of sentiment stamps.

You may think this will be difficult, but here are some suggestions on what you CAN use:
3D papertole, decoupage, quilling, iris folding, stitching, beading, origami, fancy folds, cutting machines (e.g. craftrobo, cricut), paper punches, canvases, stickers, rub-ons, parchment, etc.......

Due to graphic technology any entry with a graphic image will be subject to the Design Teams' discretion and we will contact you if we feel the entry does not meet the ethos of our challenge blog.

A technique challenge will be included as a bonus.  This will not be a requirement for an entry but if you do use the nominated technique in your project, it will count as two entries for you.

The Theme this month is Trees and the Bonus Technique is Paper punches/diecuts, if you include this technique, you will get a bonus entry.

This challenge closes Friday, 2nd December and Winners announced Monday, 5th December.

Remember we are working on Aussie Time.

Our sponsor for November is CMD Cards.

The lovely Cherryn from CMD Cards is offering a $10.00 gift certificate.  Please visit her store and have a look at all the lovely paper goodies she has available -   

Now for my DT entry.

I used the diecut trees from CMD highlighted with just a touch of kindy glitz, computer generated sentiment, printed on White Dimples cardstock from Blue Edge Crafts

I would like to submit the above card to the following challenges
The Craft Garden - Christmas no red or green
Bows and Berries - Clean and Simple

I was so inspired, I went on to create another card.

I would like to submit the above card for the following challenges:

Creative Inspirations - Anything Goes
Dream Valley Challenges - Anything Goes
Inspire Me Friday - Anything Goes
Papertake Weekly - Anything goes
Samuel Taylors Challenge - Christmas (prize is a Martha Stewart Double Craft Punch "Icelandic Snowflake")

I am so glad there are lots of challenge blogs about to encourage me to make a start on my Christmas Cards.

The DT had a really difficult job picking a favourite this month!
