Flourished Tree


Here's a fun Christmas card using non-traditional colors.  I used the negative die cut from my In the Meadow tree and layered some patterned paper behind it.  I stamped the flourishes over the stripes to match the Hawaiian Shores cardstock.

I used the sketch from CAS-ual Fridays 29:


I'm also entering this for Our Creative Corner's challenge to make a project with a Christmas Tree on it
and the Friday Mashup 34 to make a Christmas themed card.

Hope you have a wonderful weekend!

Blessings,

This is wonderful. I love the idea of stamping on that patterned paper, and using the negative of the tree die cut.
