"..... I want you to use PIPE CLEANERS!! Any shape, colour or form - put them on a card! I know it can be difficult to incorporate Pipe Cleaners on cards (sticking them down is one obstacle!) but they can be put to lots of interesting uses too! So go on - it wouldn't be a challenge site if it was easy would it?"
The Christmas tree, banners and Christmas Fairy are, of course, part of the Christmas Dottie Collection available from Charmed Cards and Crafts. Papers are Basic Grey Figgy Pudding
and the pipe cleaner is the tinsel on the tree. I added faux stitching, highlighted the images with Sakura stardust pens and covered the Christmas tree bucket with Doodlebug Flock.
