Edgy Tree

Here is a card I have made for two challenges.  I want to describe how I made the tree on the left hand side of the card.  I took the paper I was using as background paper and cut the shape of half of the tree out from the left hand side.  Then I glued the background paper to the card stock.  Then, using a craft knife, with the card folded, I very carefully cut around the shape of the the aperture on the background paper.  So then when I opened it up I had a full tree.  I thought it was a really fun technique and I think I will use it again.

Anyway,  here are the challenges I am using this card for:
1) Charismas Cardz Challenge # 49 - the theme was "Christmas Makes"
2) Simon Says Challenge - What is your favorite tool, stamp or project.  Well, I have to say that my favorite tool is probably always going to be my quilling tool.  While I love using multiple techniques, it is the quilling to which I always go back.
