You Are One In a Million

Hi everyone! I finally made time to work in my studio yesterday. I had a deadline to meet. I created this card for Cath's Moxie Fab Lovely as a Tree challenge. I've haven't done one of her challenges in months. I also wanted to use my new QuicKutz Silhouette for the project. If you remember, I was the lucky winner of this machine.

I cut the tree out twice and glued the trees together to almost create my own chipboard. I mounted the tree on the card using foam tape. I added thread to all 24 buttons and attached them with glue dots. I did faux stitching around the entire card (inspired by Kristina) and then at the last minute (like 15 minutes before the deadline) I added stitching to the tree. I love how it looks.

Have a great day!
