Let's Trim the Tree for Challenge #47 - Slimline Cards

Hi there, it's Tree Trimming Time here at Christmas Kickstart!

Our elfin inspiration for this challenge was provided by Arlene M from a Bit of this and That.  Arlene was such lovely company, and has even offered to come and join us again in the future! How sweet is that! Thanks so much, Arlene, I've loved having you on board for this challenge.

Arlene picked Slimline cards as the theme for our challenge and we had an amazing 38 players. Thanks to everyone who joined the fun; it was great to see so many new players in the linky and the standard of all the entries was just amazing. Thank goodness I had help from Arlene to choose our Top Picks and Tree Topper.

Our Top Picks are as follows:

What a colourful, fun card - such a clever way to do Slimline!

A superbly stylish and classy card.

Topping the Tree for this Challenge is
