A new challenge over at Dream Valley

Good morning blogger friends.
I hope you are all having a good weekend. I am usually at work when this post goes live but I have today off and I plan to prepare for a craft fair at the end of the month. And tomorrow - I am going to see my granddaughter Evie. Cant wait for cuddles, I am so excited.
Today sees the start of a new challenge over at Dream Valley. We are being sponsored by Crafty Ribbons and the winner of this challenge will win a bag of goodies. The theme for this challenge is Clean and Simple.
I have used an image from LOTV "Swirly fir tree".
I have taken this picture with the red background as it was lost against white though I think it is a bit too red. I guess it makes it more Christmassy though.
I have used a paper pad form LOTV and I am going to be really sorry when this runs out.
I have combined a plain red ribbon (from my stash) and a tartan ribbon (from Asda) to make this bow.
Thank you all for stopping by. I will have more time to visit your wonderful blogs this week as I am not at work until Thursday. Yippee.
I will take some photos on Monday of Evie
I would like to enter this card into the following challenges
Designed to color - Christmas/winter
Inky Impressions - Red/Green
Have a wonderful week.

Not too much red at all! It is Christmas themed after all. I love how you sort of shaded the edges of the background...looks fab.

I really like the tartan on this is traditionally Christmas and it looks fabulous!

The triangle tree was a brilliant idea...great design!
