It's time for the next Festive Friday challenge and this time, it's an Element challenge: Tree!
I love the quilt from the inspiration photo, but decided to go simple and elegant with this one. I cut my tree (it's a black die - I have no idea where I got it, sorry!) from Soft Stone cardstock and popped the negative up on dimensionals. This gave a nice spot to fill in with some beautiful red Sprinkles from Annabelle Stamps, some little gold gems and Stampin' Up pearls.
"Random" placement can be tricky. I placed the sprinkles first (I laid them out before I started gluing), then placed the others around, keeping in mind the rule of threes and triangles. But really in the end, I relied on my eyes and my own feeling, too!
I hope you'll be playing along with this challenge - you'll be glad you did when December rolls around. But if that isn't enough motivation, there's a prize available for people who've played in at least 15 challenges! The deadline for our Tree challenge is Wednesday, July 3.
