A little bit of green paint....

Hello all,
I was doing some blog hopping this afternoon and came upon the Embellish "Paint Color Trends Challenge". 

Here is the inspiration graphic and color pallette:
I recently purchased a little 6x6 distressed diamond mask and have had it sitting on my desk ready for use.  I decided this was the perfect opportunity to try it out.  I also have a notebook where I jot down card ideas when they come to me and have been wanting to try making a "felt" christmas tree using the star border dies from Papertrey Ink.  I woke up one morning with the idea in my head and drew a quick sketch in my notebook.  I am happy to report that it came out as cute as I thought it would!

I also chose to decorate the inside of the card as I usually enclose a Holiday letter in my cards and just sign our names to the actual message area.
That is it for me tonight!  Thanks for taking a look at my card!  Sorry that the pictures have shadows and are a little dark - it is overcast in Seattle this afternoon and very dark and shadowy even with my extra lighting!!! 
:) Jill


  1. Jill, what a GREAT IDEA to make a Christmas tree out of the star border!!! Love, love it! Kind of the opposite, right ... instead of a star on top of the tree, the stars ARE the tree.

  2. Love the felt tree Jill, gotta try this!!

  3. What lovely techniques you used on this card Jill! love the felt tree and the painted background!

  4. so gorgeous jill.i love your fab felt tree and stunning colours ;D

  5. So how creative you got with that star border, just so beautiful.

  6. Jill, the design on this card is sheer perfection! LOVE LOVE LOVE the star Christmas tree and the snowflakes everywhere are such a FAB detail! The inside is Great, too! Did I say I LOVE it?!!!!

  7. I say this a few week ago, and just checked back to see it tonight. I was not too sure about it. Love the card you made , felt tree out of stars….. Great idea! I will go back and look again. Beautiful inside as well.
