Authentique October Color Challenge. I used papers from the Authentique Loyal and Celebrate Collections. These beautiful patterned papers worked wonderfully with the color challenge which includes: ivory, mountain pine and blacksmith. I hand cut two trees from green Authentique and matted them with black Authentique. I adhered the tree on the right with dimensional adhesive. I cut strips from the patterned paper and adhered it diagonally to another Authentique patterned paper. To decorate the tress I added green star gems, clear gems and narrower strips of the same Authentique patterned paper. I matted the card on Authentique black and finished by attaching the handwritten sentiment.
