Merry Bright Trees

It is time for another CAS Colours & Sketches challenge. Check out the latest challenge:


And here is my take:

Merry Bright Trees | by karen @ carefree creations

I love using non-traditional color schemes for Christmas cards. When I was brainstorming for this challenge, I thought about blue and green (and after a few other ideas) came to trees and this card formed!

I added a square rhinestone to the top of each tree. I’ve had those square blings for ages and this is the first time I’ve used them – but I thought they would look like little stars.

I hope you join us at CAS Colours & Sketches!

Thanks for stopping by!

  1. Love the use of the blue and green for the Christmas trees and the stars on top are perfect. The loopy merry& bright fits so nicely with the loops on the middle tree too. Really great card. Liz x

  2. I would not have thought to use the turquoise with Christmas trees, but you’ve pulled this off superbly. I like the bits of bling, too. Great job, Karen!
