E for Evergreen

Good Morning, Carissa here with a new challenge for you but before we get to that I must say that you had some wonderful creations for our last Challenge D for Distress and we loved seeing all of the creative techniques that you used …. remember to check the sidebar to see if you are one of the 2 lucky winners and also see who Samantha chose for her Top 3 picks. 

I bet you are all wondering what our new challenge is. 
Well this time around, I am the host and for this fortnight I have chosen:
E for Evergreen

We are not asking to see the colour green but we won't mind one bit if you use it.
What we are looking for this time is all of that Traditional Christmas Greenery that we decorate with each year, so dig through your stash for all of your trees, holly and mistletoe, it is time to deck the halls.
