CCEE1350 - O Christmas Tree

Today is the last CCEE Stampers challenge for the year.

Frances brought the CCEE Stampers the lyrics of a song for this week's challenge.

O Christmas Tree, O Christmas tree, How lovely are your branches! 
O Christmas Tree, O Christmas tree, How lovely are your branches! 
In beauty green will always grow Through summer sun and winter snow. 
O Christmas tree, O Christmas tree, How lovely are your branches!

Our challenge was to use the lyrics for inspiration -- include a Christmas tree, pine branches of a Christmas tree, or even a tree in a summer or winter setting.  I always had a soft spot in my heart for Charlie Brown's Christmas tree, and my card sort of reminds me of it.

Check out the cards made by the rest of the CCEE Stampers by visiting our blog.

Wow, I love this lone tree with the plaid and the gold bow. I would never have thought to add gold, it is so perfect with it.

I must get out the Charlie Brown Christmas and watch it!! Your little tree is just sweet, Lois, and the plaid background would make it extra suitable for a guy. Beautiful gold bow, too!!
