Wonder of Christmas

OMGoodness, I am in love with this card and I do not feel that way often about anything I make. This is a sneak peak of the set "Wonder of Christmas" which will be coming out on Oct. 1st at Treehouse Stamps. I really wanted to change the color of the trees to green but couldn't figure out how to do it so I went with the black ones and so glad I did. This card came together in 20 minutes, gotta love that! I made this card for 3 challenges. 1. The Paper Sundaes challenge to use 3 or more embellishments on your card. (pearls, snow flake brad, glitter, fun flock, ribbon). 2. Catch-the-Bug Challenge- to use sewing on your card. 3. Sweet Sketch Wednesday.
Blessings,
~Stephanie

Just beautiful....I know you can change the color in the program Photoshop Elements and Photoshop and there are several tutorials. You could probably change it in Inkscape and/or Illustrator with a little extra work. but I agree with you....it makes a statement staying black. Just lovely!!
