Shabby Winter Tree




Another shabby holiday dual...with the Paper Players sketch and the Shabby Tea Room inspiration photo and color palette (I liked it so much, thought I'd give it another go).




I had planned to add a sentiment but must've gotten side tracked by one of my munchkins or two...thought this would make a lovely winter wedding congratulations card though. 

My tree is heat embossed in Silver and for the extra sparkle, I ran a strip of Sticky Strip across the tree before sprinkling on the Dazzling Diamond Glitter. The little poinsettias also got a bit of bling with three little drops of Dazzling Details on the centers of the flowers. I edged the circle and poinsettia cardstock with a bit of Crumb Cake to help define the lines. The white scrap of tulle was a fab find in my ribbon jar.
