Pixie Snippets Week 143

My card for the Pixie Snippets challenge this week is another one using snippets of quilling paper - this time formed into a simple Christmas tree.  The rest of the card is put together using oddments from my bits and pieces boxes so plenty of 'snippets' this week.  I quite enjoyed my return to quilling but wouldn't like to do it exclusively because I much prefer to experiment and 'dabble', trying many different techniques and styles.  Variety is the spice of life they say!!

Tree - various quilling shapes
Background - an odd piece of seasonal paper
Circles - Spellbinder dies
Label shape - Deco labels Sizzix die (Stampin' Up)
Sentiment - stamped onto a scrap of card using Stampin' Up stamp
