Aqua Trees

I just had to join in with the Totally Gorjuss 'Shades of Aqua' challenge...it's my favourite colour! I followed the sketch from Taylored Expressions...and combined it with the 'Tree-Mendous' theme of the Cute Card Thursday and Daring Cardmakers challenges. I decided not to use a stamped image...shock horror! I cut the little trees using a die from the Cuttlebug 'Winter' set, then matted them on to shapes cut using my Nesties. The papers are from the 'Wonderful Winter' collection by My Mind's Eye. I cut the scalloped border using an EK Success punch ('Diamond Scallop'), then tied a piece of grosgrain ribbon (from Popppicrafts) around it.
