Rags to riches..


                   Happy Monday!  I popped in to Pti's make it Monday with Melissa Phillips and watched her tutorial on making these fabric trees.  I just had to try my hand at one...which actually ended up being three.  They are addicting!  I has so much fun ripping up my fabric and ribbon and putting it together.  These remind me of rag garlands that I use to make.  Mine came out quite bushy...I am use to Douglas Firs around here (smile).  I also decided to use the fabric strips for something different and instead of making a tree I made a fabric border for my first card.  I loved the sweet out come of this and will be doing that again in a different color scheme.  I love how being inspired by someone leads down a whole new avenue.  It is a snowball effect and it just keeps on giving!  Enjoy!  Hugs, cherry

I saw the same tutorial by Melissa Phillips. Can't wait to try it out. Yours turned out lovely! I really adore how you used the fabric as your trim on the card - very pretty!
