Cog Christmas Tree Card

 Hello folks!  Here is a Christmas card I made using Joanna Sheen's 'Speedy Celebration' stamp set.  I cut the triangle aperture and stamped through using the cogs and gears from the stamp set.  I added the backing paper (handy to cover all the 'over-stamping') and added ribbon, a bow and extra ribbon curls before adhering to the front of the card.
 I added some dark red self adhesive pearls to the tree.
The flowers are made up of some die cut (Marianne dies) some punched (Woodware) and some stamped (from the Speedy stamp set) layers and finished off with more self adhesive pearls.
Ciao for now!
