Bright Spark

I have been wanting to do some weaving of some kind recently, be it paper or ribbon, so the DCM challenge (So this week we'd love you to join in and make Christmas cards using lots and lots of fabby, yummy ribbon - now that shouldn't be too hard, after all we all love ribbon, don't we?) provided me with such opportunity! Actually making the tree was harder than I thought and the whole thing although it might not look like much took me ages!! It is a bit brighter than I imagined but hey.. not changing it now! Added some little coloured rhinestones onto the ribbon, and used some coloured in chipboard for the baubles, and my film strip punch to thread the red ribbon.

Great card - the weaving must have taken ages, I tried paper weaving once and failed miserably. I am seriously impressed.
