Let's Trim the Tree for Challenge #66

It's Tree trimming Time here again at Christmas Kickstart! 

Challenge #66 was very popular with 42 lovely cards in the gallery - thank you so much!

And thank you so much to our elf Tina in Slovenia and her gorgeous inspiration card which got this challenge rolling. Tina was poorly in the middle of this challenge, so, please, can we all send her lots of healing vibes for her continued progress. Thankyou, Tina, it was lovely partnering with you.

Our theme was...

and we were blown away by the variety of the entries for this challenge. Choosing our Top Picks and Winner was tricky, but this is what we came up with:

#18 - Fabiola

We both love Fabiola's little street scene in pencil crayon on kraft.

The details on Linda's fabulous snow globe card card are amazing!

Dawn's beautiful placement of the different elements of her card make it a real stunner.

As with Dawn's card, placement is everything for this creation too! 
Add in a colour combo that makes me go weak at the knees 
and you can see why Fran made our Top Picks!

Our Winner for this challenge is this Tree Topping card by

#24 - Julie K

A swooningly beautiful creation with fabulous attention to detail.

Congratulations to Fabiola, Linda, Dawn, Fran and our challenge winner, Julie. Please grab your badges - we hope you enjoy them!

Finally, here's Rudolph with the winner of his Random Raffle Prize...


It's YOU, #29 - Nicola G
