"For my thoughts are not your thoughts, neither are your ways my ways, saith the Lord. For as the heavens are higher than the earth, so are my ways higher than your ways, and my thoughts than your thoughts. For as the rain cometh down, and the snow from heaven, and returneth not thither, but watereth the earth, and maketh it bring forth and bud, that it may give seed to the sower, and bread to the eater: So shall my word be that goeth forth out of my mouth: it shall not return unto me void, but it shall accomplish that which I please, and it shall prosper in the thing whereto I sent it." ~ Isaiah 55: 8-11

TEXTURED TREE / Mojo #117 & DCBD #158...


I've been thinking about making a Christmas tree with the Daisies Flower #2 Bigz die, so when I saw the Diva colors this week, I decided to go ahead and try!



The Mojo sketch was simple & sweet this week, then again I always love the Mojo sketches! And the colors from the Diva Coffee Break challenge were awesome, as usual! And their samples are just gorgeous!!! Make sure you go see them!


To make the tree, I cut 3 papers with the Daisies Flower #2 Bigz die, one Old Olive cardstock, and 2 of 2 different Old Olive Patterns dsp. I then cut 2 or 3 sets of 6 petals & 5 petals... here's a diagram of the shapes to cut...




Once I had them cut out, I curled the petals & then started layering & gluing them down! I added some rhinestones, used the star punch to make the top star & TA-DAAA ~ a Christmas tree!


Thanks so much for stopping by!
