I'm popping in to share my card for the current Verve Get Your Diva On Challenge. The challenge this month is to create a handmade embellishment. I was inspired by a card on Pinterest and decided to give it a whirl. I love the Teresa Collins Christmas papers. I don't think I've ever purchased any of this brand paper before, but I love all the damask and text. Gorgeous.
To finish off the tree, I used the star from Verves Merry Wishes and the peace sentiment from New Mercies. Finished it off by adding a couple of gems and inking up the edges. Of course, the background panel is using my linen impression plate too...it's never far from my creations :)

Ha! I just repinned that card on my board this morning. Isn't it absolutely fun and gorgeous. I think yours came out fantastic. You did such a beautiful job, I love it. I think we are about to see a lot of versions of this tree, don't you.

Wonderfully clever, Lynn! I'm gonna have to keep my eye out for this card circulating around Pinterest, however, your's might replace it! The papers look fantastic and I love the sponged edges...they add such a fabulous softness to your card! Thanks for sharing this beauty with us!
