3 Trees & a Dash of Bling

Up in the middle of the night again (or is that still?) Sorry about the bad photo; sans flash was the only way I could get that middle tree to show up. Those Dazzling Diamonds really are dazzling! This is a tree stamp I got at the dollar store. I fell in love with the simplicity of it. It was still 3 bucks though! (harumph "DOLLAR" store???) ;0) Speaking of 3, I have always loved other people's cards with repetition of 3 images, but I have never made one until now. There's something visually soothing about repetition.

Card details: embossed silver trees. (Encore pad & silver e.p.) I've distressed these silver ares intentionally by heating the embossing powder until it dulls and disappears in areas (usually a faux pas.) I like how it looks like an aged coin or something... The center tree is done with heat'n'stick powder & dazzling diamonds. The little snow burst detail at the bottom is embossed in silver too & embellished with a gem brad. Paper: soft sky with snow burst stamped on with soft sky ink; always artichoke (c.s. & d.p.) Mellow moss card (5 and 1/4 squared.) Ribbon Michael's (and crooked I notice!) Must go straighten ribbon!
