Trim the Tree


Another Christmas card and another commission. This one was for the same person for one of her sisters. The brief was something to do with the theatre or London if possible as she is currently living in London and loves the theatre. The three sisters all act, sing and dance and the girl this card was for has actually appeared as the young girl in Mary Poppins on the west End stage. So I found this quite a challenge to know what to make then I remembered that she had played Clara in The Nutcracker a while ago and this image reminded me of that role.

I never quite get round to commenting on all your cards so am always pleased when I get to come back to comment on one for a challenge...and this is a beauty! The colours are so gorgeously rich, and the image is really pretty...and seems perfect for the recipient too!
