Folded christmas tree

When I saw this week's CAS-ual Fridays challenge CFC30, The Paper Players challenge #75 to make a Christmas card with non-holiday colours, and this week's Clean and Simple challenge 169, I thougth I'd try to combine them.  This is what I came up with.

 For the CASual fridays Tic Tac Toe challenge, I went with Polka Dots, Kraft and Orange.  Yes, the panel behind the tree is orange, not red - the photo shows the colour more red than it actually is. 

Happy birthday, Jim

My brother had his birthday celebration last weekend, and, as he is kind of an expert on dinosaurs, I had to use that theme for his card.  Paper from Imaginisce and a stamp from SU made the job easy :)  I put the paper onto an acetate card base, just for something different - I really like using acetate, but this one only has strips at the top and bottom that are transparent.
