Christmas Garland #3

Hi all! It's Jill here, with another addition to our communal Christmas garland.

All this month on the JBS Mercantile blog, we will be sharing our individual contributions to a group Christmas garland, incorporating our favorite chipboard pieces, bingo cards, or journaling cards.  Joining Becky's "Home for the Holidays"and Briana's damask bird is this Christmas tree, which was pieced together by inverting a scalloped banner piece for the tree and a small flag banner for the trunk (painted with Brown Sugar).

I covered the tree with strips of patterned paper from the JBS Christmas 2011 collection, including Carol Index, Holly Stripe, and the B-side of the Accessory Sheet.  Over these patterns, I added rows of embellishments, including pearl flowers, doily flowers, and garnet charms...
as well as Micro Dot Alterable Alphas and chipboard buttons.

Be sure to check back all this month to see the garland come together, piece by lovely piece!
