Sharing a week with Joy Taylor: Day 5

Welcome back to my week of sharing creations with Joy Taylor.  This is our final day together...and I'm sad to see it end.  Joy is so kind, easy going, not to mention UBER talented.  Getting to know her has been so wonderful. 

Our final entry in this sharing week is to create a tree with our embellishments.  After seeing Joy's gorgeous card yesterday, I decided to go back to one of my old favorite color combination that I haven't used in awhile.  Purple and Green.  


And here's a close-up of the flower rows and the gemstones. 


I've had a bottle of itty bitty Prima flowers sitting on the shelf....they were just screaming to become an elegant Christmas tree.  This is easier than it looks, I just put adhesive on my card base (in a tree shape) and started adding flowers in rows left to right, then right to left, starting from the bottom.  I actually hand sew the twine so it would be secure. 

Now I'm off to see Joy's creation.  Care to join me?

I will be back tomorrow....it's the Hero Arts Blog HOP!!!! I can't wait to show you some brand spanking NEW stamps from the 2011 catalog!!! 

Enjoy!
