Christmas Tree - Timeless Tuesday



This week's Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge was to get an inspiration picture off of Pinterest. So, I picked this lovely tree:
Christmas Tree.....Trendy Tree
I colored my tree with lots of pink to match the picture.  Pinks and red I used are: R56, RV66, RV32, RV34.  I used a variety of greens to get the shading just right: G40, YG61, YG63 and YG67.  The blue accents were colored with B41 and B52.  Highlighting is with B0000.

The card layout was inspired by a card made by Cindy Lawrence found here.  She did a beautiful job coloring the tree!  Finished card is an A2.
