Trendy Tree Tops Day Five

Hello you guys! I'm back today with a final peek at my new set... Trendy Tree Tops before it's available for purchase tomorrow through Papertrey Ink. Today I wanted to focus on embellishing these little trendy trees, so let me get right to it...
First up, rhinestones! Using the grass image from Hanging Out, I stamped a row at the bottom of the Rustic Cream card front (masking off a 1/2" on both sides) in Simply Chartreuse. Then a Trendy Tree Tops trunk in Dark Chocolate.Topped the tree trunk off with a Berry Sorbet tree top and then added a bit of sparkle using clear rhinestones. Finished the card off with a Trendy Tree Tops sentiment.Last but not lease, I added a few blooms to this sweet little sympathy card. I attached an embossed border along the base, stamped the tree trunk in Dark Chocolate, the bird tree top in Spring Moss and the leaves in Simply Chartreuse. Then livened things up a bit with a few tiny Orange Zest flowers (from Hanging Out). Stamped a heartfelt sentiment (from Beautiful Butterflies), wrapped with a ribbon bow and finished the card off with a die cut Hawaiian Shores bird.

Well, that concludes day five of the countdown. I truly hope that you have enjoyed and were inspired by all that I have shared the past few days. Just remember... this set is available for purchase through Papertrey Ink, beginning April 15th, for $15. In the mean time, if you do happen to add this set to your collection...
