Mini Trees Squared Up - Fab Friday 56

  I've taken quite the break haven't I?  Well I am back and ready to share with you the next Fab Friday Challenge!

  Now I'm going to warn you, it might be intimidating at first because there are A LOT of colors!  But I know you can make some fabulous cards because the colors are so awesome together!  I went with Christmas but I think they would work for a guy card, kids cards....really anything you can dream up!

  And here is my Christmas card using our challenge colors:

  There isn't too much stamping on this one but there are still some details to point out.   The stamping is just a few snowflakes stamped in opposite corners and then the sentiment.  I used Chocolate Chip ink for the sentiment because I needed something darker so it would show up without taking away from the colors of the trees.

  After punching the mini trees out I mounted them on a Whisper White squares that are paper pierced using the square piercing guide.  Those squares are popped up with dimensionals onto a slightly larger Crumb Cake square.

  Next I decorated each tree with various bits and baubles.  The Old Olive tree is topped with a bit of silver thread from the silver baker's twine and held down with a Cherry Cobbler candy dot.

  The Bermuda Bay tree is decorated with a snowflake from the Frosted Sequins collection.  I topped it with a rhinestone for some sparkle.

  The Coastal Cabana tree has a punched Glimmer Paper heart.  The heart in the owl builder punch was the perfect size for the mini trees.

 Last is the Cherry Cobbler tree that has a large silver sequin from the Frosted Sequins collection.  I colored a small rhinestone with the darkest Old Olive Blendabilities marker and added it to the top of the sequin.

  I can't wait to see what you make with these great challenge colors.  Check out the rest of the Fab Friday Design Team samples and then play along!
