DCM ~ Colour challenge

I can't remember the last time I managed to join in with the ~{Daring Cardmakers}~, I'm only just managing to keep up with my DT stuff, so challenges go by the wayside. It was only when I was finishing off this card this morning that I realised it fitted in with the challenge this week, which is to use red, white, green and blue.

I was making this using Tando's ~{Mini Wonky Trees}~ for part of a DT challenge and knew I could use it now and use the rest for the Tando blog.

I've painted the trees with acrylic paint and doodled a border when it was dry before adding tiny gem stars. It took almost as long to stick them in place than to do the whole of the rest of the card!!! I really need new glasses! I've used some paper I've had in my stash for years and cut it to fit with the printed greeting and tore some washi tape and inked some lines above this before adding the trees.

The card itself is really tiny, 10 x 10 cms, so that shows you how dinky the trees are! To find stockists of the trees ~{Click Here}~.
