My sisters birthday gift and card!!

I wanted to make the trees that were on souternstampers (thesouternstamper.blogspot.com)christmas countdown. These are what I came up with. Instead of using pins to attached the paper, I hot glued it to the styrofoam. I love how they turned out!! I know what all my friends are getting for Christmas. They are inexpensive but easy to do. Love that!!
Large and small trees!!

Project Recipe:
Paper: retired DSP from SU!
Accessories: styrofoam triangles - big and small, bling, glue dots, hot glue gun, Sizzix snowflake dies #2
Here is the birthday card I made for her. I wanted to try the test tube gift card holder from Gretchen Barron(gretchenbarron.typepad.com), but wanted to gear it towards my sister. She has alway been a princess ;) so I used the Artistic Etchings stamp set.
Sorry the pic is very blurry!
Card Recipe:
Paper: Always Artichoke, Whisper White, retired DSP from SU!
Stamp Sets: Artistic Etchings, Favorite sayings, and I am not sure what the Happy Birthday is from.
Ink: Crumb Cake, Always Artichoke, Concord Crush
Accessories: test tube, bling, Crumb Cake satin ribbon
