Half Circle Trees




Challenges:
Crazy 4 Challenges - sketch
Raise the Bar - trees
Colour Q - soft suede, wild wasabi, tempting turquoise, pacific point, white
Paper Cutz - create a Christmas card and use 2 kinds of patterned paper & any colors
Using Cindy Haffner's great sketch, I created these trees by folding a half circle (3 3/8 inches in diameter) of DP. I subbed a more olive shade of green instead of wasabi and the blue in the one tree is close to pacific point, though not exact. I chose to add a grouping of holly leaves for the circle element and added the sentiment to the inside. Thanks for stopping by...

PAPER: Autumn Meadows DP (SU), Merry Moments DP (SU), Old Olive, White
ACCESSORIES: CM circle cutting system, Rhinestones, MS holly leaf punch, EK Success large snowflake punch, Satin ribbon, Twinkling like Stars spica pen (to highlight holly leaves)
