This is a picture of the pretty tile from the Xenia Taler web store that inspired my card for Saturday's Inspiration Challenge over on Split Coast. It instantly made me think of this fun tree stamp from the new Sewing Box Christmas set by Waltzingmouse Stamps. If you are into folk art and/or sewing or just that home spun look - this is the set for you!I stamped the 'ornaments' on colored card stock, punched them with a circle punch - then layered them on the tree with foam dimensionals after sponging the edges. I paperpieced the base with card stock. The Faux stitched border is from another Waltzingmouse Stamp set called Off Beat Backgrounds (check out the fun stamps in that set!) I distressed the edges of the top panel and used some silver ice stickles on the star for a little spot of shimmer.
Inside my card I stamped a pretty sentiment from the Seasons of Love set as well as the stitched heart from the Sewing Box Christmas set. I may go back and color that in yellow to match the front of the card now that I'm looking at it here!!
