Papercraft Star Challenge 75

Hello everyone!  I hope you are all having a good week.  Today we have a new challenge up for you over at the Papercraft Star!  This week use a tree in your project.  We have a lovely inspiration photo to use to get the ideas flowing and for more inspiration hop on over to each design team members blog!  For my card I used patterned paper from Webster's pages which had a tree printed right on to the paper.  I added a rosette made from a Tim Holtz die and adhered an image from our sponsor The House Across The Bay.  This adorable image is from Christmas Pendant Circles 186.  There are so many sweet images in this one sheet and they punch out perfectly using a 1 inch circle punch.  I tied up a simple bow with a rose adhered to the center.  The tag was made using a spellbinders die and stamped with a sentiment from Verve.  I look forward to seeing what you come up with!  Just link your project up by Monday 6:00 a.m EST for your chance to win some images from our sponsor THATB!  Thank you for stopping by and have a great week!


You can see this sweet little girl in the center of the rosette.   I printed her out on shimmer white paper so she looks like she's walking in a winter wonderland!
