Crafty Sentiments New Release Previews, Day Four

Good morning people we must stop meeting like this lol It's day four of the Crafty Sentiments Christmas In July Previews and today we are showcasing 'Dressing The Tree', this is another of the adorable image's you could win (see day one's post for details).

Have you ever started one of those projects that you wish you hadn't? Well this was mine, it seemed like a good idea to begin with but oh no how time consuming was it.  
I decided it would be a good idea to glitter the baubles on the tree to match the bauble ribbon but not having all the colours in stickles I used sprinkle glitter and wet glue but didn't think about having to wait for each colour to dry before the next colour could be glittered grrrrr, I said oh how silly of me!!!! So stickles is definitely the way to go with this type of project, time to buy some more I think.


6" Square Card Blank - Craft Superstore
Cardstock - Doublemates
Designer Papers - DCWV but really old and the top cover is missing
Medium - Promarkers
Ribbon - Boyes
Glitter - Stickles 'Gold, Red & Holly Green' the rest of the colours are 'Crafttime'
