Purple Gingham Christmas Tree Card

This card measures 5 x 5 ins and is made using white linen effect card.
Purple Gingham Christmas Card
Why do some cards just come so easily and others seem to take forever to match papers etc and look right.  This is one that took ages, how silly is that?  Anyway, it’s hard to see, but the tree I’ve used is actually purple and glittery, hence the purple gingham layers, and comes from a pack of Smirk Christmas chipboard shapes. I’ve doodles a faux running stitch round the white layer, and on the outer gingham layer I have done a tiny cross stitch pattern, which is just about visible.
