Snowflakes Can be Green

Hello Everyone,   I have missed writing! 

I have been really busy with classes.  I'm starting a new copic series at a local craft store.  I'm still in the planning phase.  I have been mulling over ideas and projects, doing my best to create a projects that progressively become more challenging as we go. I look forward to sharing those with you as

 As a result, the blog has been waiting patiently for a new card.  Well bloggers...they are coming...  It is probably is wishful thinking, but I hope to get them up this week.

Snowy Tree
This card idea is not a new idea.  It is just new to me.  There are so many cool cards out there that use snowflakes to make beautiful pictures.   I used seven Green (yes..GREEN) snowflakes to make this Christmas tree.  It felt a little strange to punch out snowflakes out of a dark green card stock.  However, when put against the brown background, it all came together.  
I finished off each snowflake with a red rhinestone.  The tree is topped off with a star.... I think... not totally sure what to call that shape.   Around the edges of the card I used a white gel pen to create a stitched effect.  The card is simple, playful and I managed to do it without using a single copic marker!  It tis' the season for miracles.

Many Hugs

Supply list:
Punch: Martha Stewart's Snowflake
Paper: kraft, wild wasabi, chocolate chip, white
Other: gel pen, red rhinstone
Stamp: Sentiment is from Papertrey... I think.
