Holly Tree For BasicGrey Challenge

A Christmas card for the BasicGrey challenge this week, which is about stitching. So look closely and you will see the stitching on the ribbon 🙂

The stamp is from Pink Cat Studio, which I managed to get from Dies to Dies For. I had been desperately wanting these fabby stamps and the lovely Tracy stocks them 🙂 There are all sorts of combinations you can make with this plate of stamps, I just didn’t know where to start!

Do you get obsessed as I do about a crafty want? Just got to have it 🙂 Desperately ‘need’ some Nestabilities and a Scor-Pal at the moment (just don’t tell my boyfriend).

PS. If you are looking to get these fab stamps too just take a look here (you might recognise the card! – thanks, Tracy). She stocks Copic pens as well – mmmm, adding those to my wishlist 🙂
