Joyful Stars Close to My Heart November Blog Hop

 photo JoyfulStarsBlogHopBadge3_zpsa824a544.jpg
Welcome to the Joyful Stars November blog hop, where a group of talented Close to My Heart consultants, and me, gather to share ideas with you in a fun blog hop. 
My card this month is a variation of the double curtain fold.
For some reason, every time I put adhesive on the back of a double curtain fold my eye saw an evergreen tree.  Now that it's time to put Christmas trees on cards, I thought I'd give a double curtain fold tree a try.  
Actually, I had no choice.  My stupid brain was not going to let me create anything else until I did! 

What do you think?

The card above was made using some CTMH retired paper.  
Here's a version using the current CTMH Oh Deer Paper and some of the beautiful Sea Glass glitter paper.

 Looks like a tree to me!

Now, since this is a blog hop you might have arrived here from Andrea Sherman's blog.
Your next stop is Marie Flayer's blog.   The hop is circular. So if you are just starting here, simply continue hopping until you find your way back, making the full circle.  If you get lost, the complete list of participants is on Joyce's blog.
