    Nice card Ashley, Great way to use up scraps of cardstock and make a fun card. I noticed that you used different patterns and pattern sizes with white as your image. Lots of design concepts here!! I think I’m going to have some fun getting my scraps together and create some background pieces that I can use in 2014!! Happy New Year!

    Awesome work Ashley, I wonder what kind of glue do you use for the diecut tree, I always have problem apply adhesive to delicate diecuts.
