Funky Tree

This is a really cute idea on saw on our stand at the NEC, so I can't take credit for the idea but this is my take on it :)

The tree shape is a peel off and I've painstakingly added different gems and buttons to fit into the little circles! when I was getting towards the end I got a bit lazy and finished off with a few different shades of stickles. The greeting is a personal impressions stamp.
Thanks for stopping by!
