Topiary Tree

I really like the way this card turned out (I only wish the pic was a bit clearer!) This lovely little tree is one of two topiary trees from the Joys Of The Season cart. I cut the tree 3 times once in brown,once in green and once in red. I chopped bits off each tree leaving the brown one intact and layered up the tree and pot. I used a punch which was a magazine freebie for the little flowers and some peel offs (yes you did hear correctly!) to decorate the tub. The tree was then matted and layered on some red dotty Doodlebug paper and green and red card. The sentiment 'We wish you a Merry Christmas' is computer generated onto Safmat. The paper is DCWV (I think!). The join in the paper is covered by a piece of gros-grain printed ribbon and a knotted bow. The centre of the flowers have a little dot of red Stickles to add a little sparkle. I also did this card with red flowers on the tree, but it could be used at any time of the year with different coloured flowers and a different sentiment. I think it would make a lovely Mother's Day card. What do you think?
