Decorating the tree

Hope you are all keeping warm. We have an a day indoors today. We had some more snow overnight but not much during the day but it has been so cold it hasn't thawed that much. A good excuse to stay in and craft. These little bunnies and bear are very busy decorating this tree ready for Christmas. I have used very traditional colours for this one with some old papers and ribbon from my stash and Wild Orchid flowers and punched and embossed ivy leaves and lots of glitter.
Challenges
Lili of the Valley Fab sketch which I rotated

I was thrilled to find that I have won a set of Nestability hearts from Create 4 fun. They'll come in handy for weddings, anniversaries, Valentines etc.

Hi Marianne, lovely cute card, but can't see much of the gold from our photo inspiration, though it is quite a hard challenge I thought. Thanks for joining us at Penny's and good luck.
