Christmas in August

OK, back to reality.
Last two weeks I spent on wonderful holiday visiting Croatia & Slovenia, peninsula Izola. Beautiful place, sun, delicious food and wonderful, friendly people.
So my posts of last two weeks were written under an umbrella by the pool. LOL Fortunately I had some never published cards in my laptop, and it appeared they suit just perfect for some challenges. There was a free wi-fi all around, so no problem to stay tuned.

Anyway, I've jumped from summer holiday to Christmas, as we're having a
Challenge #75: Christmas in August
Yes, that's right!  We want to give you another chance to get a jump start on those Christmas cards.  July should not be the only month allowed!  So, go ahead and show us your Christmas creations, take the opportunity to not be a procrastinator this year!!!!  You have time until Sunday, August 19th @ 11:59pm (EST). To enter click HERE.

My DT card was clean & simple this time and the idea was to use fabric circles and create a X-mas tree.
I sewed the whole thing with my own hands using needle and thread.
A little explanation: this is a star, that in our tradition is being carried by carollers. There is a pic of traditional carollers: They go from door to door singing carols and get money for that (or in the olden days: food) - something like 'trick or treat', but during X-mas. The star is being placed on a toothpick, wrapped with two threads.
The sentiment says 'Merry X-mas' of course!
 This card is also for the following challenges:
