It's a long road from Chriss' inspiration to my final card, but trust me, it's where my idea originated. ;) I looked to the multicolour tree, the use of black and texture, and the star. I was originally going to use a rainbow of bottle-brush trees, but then wandered off in an entirely different direction that resulted in this:
One tree turned into three, each in a different metallic embossing powder colour. My trees weren't really big enough to take up the entire card, so I cut the black panel and layered the patterned paper under. If only there had been copper stars to go with the silver and gold! Finally, a black on (mostly) white sentiment. I debated adding stars to the treetops, as Chriss did with hers, but it seemed to detract too much from the artsiness of the sketchy tree design.
As for the Halloween card... it will show up here eventually, I'm sure. ;)
