Daring Cardmakers - Piping Hot!

Daring Cardmakers was the first challenge I ever did, well over a year ago now, and I still love them ......even though I HATE pipe cleaners!!! I raided DS's craft box for this one.

"..... 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.

Wow, Juliet - I can't believe how much you've managed to get onto this card - it must have taken ages and it all looks so fab and festive. At this rate you'll even inspire ME to start thinking about Christmas cards...........well maybe in a month or two!

Well done on completing this challenge - gold star for you!
