*Springy* Trendy Trees


DSCN5929 So, I thought I would try to make a card with my favorite new stamp set, Trendy Trees, where there was a spring-like feel to it.  I thought the little tree with the dots would be fun to either marker in flowers on some of the dots, or....of course....add glitter to them!!  You all know I LOVE glitter!!!  This glitter is the Pink one in the NEW glitter pack in the SU! IB&C called "Fine Supernova" Stampin' Glitter.  From my experience, it's difficult photographing colored glitter - even more so than Dazzling Diamonds (or any other "translucent" glitter) so I hope you can get the idea - especially from the little close-up shot.  I think it's a super cute card - I'm very happy with it - and I have the perfect person to send it to!!!

I hope you're all having a wonderful day!!!  I have another Trendy Tree card for you on Monday - it's a very simple one, but I like what I did to the tree on this card too so you'll have to stay tuned....
