Pin It
This is the First of Two Post for today!! If you're looking for the Newton's Nook Designs Release Post, Please Refresh the Page!! =) THANKS!! 
Sorry for the Late Posts today!! My Baby Greyson has been SUPER Sick for 2 weeks!! After another Hospital Visit we found out he had Swallowed a Lego!! I'm FEELING SO BLESSED that this didn't turn into something more sever and APPRECIATE ALL of your COMMENTS and PRAYERS!! Have a Fabulous Weekend!!  =)

Welcome back to the Paper Sweeties April Release Rewind!!
I decided to play along with a Sparkle & Shine Challenge Four with this Card for today!! I decided to create a REALLY BEAUTIFUL Purple Tree!! From the time I can remember these Purple Trees have been one of my most FAVORITE Things about Spring!! =) I LOVE driving around the Country and seeing them in ALL of their Glory once they star to Bloom!! If you've NEVER seen these trees here is a Picture I found on the Internet to share with you!! Now Picture these scattered EVERYWHERE and you can probably TOTALLY understand why I LOVE these SO MUCH!! =)

                                                         Tree Of Life
I Die Cut a Circle for the Main Body of my Tree then I added Distress Ink in Seedless Preserves and then Splattered it with Water and some Iridescent Spray!! I Stamped and Die Cut the Leaves and then added some Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Marker onto to make them Sparkle!! =) I Stamped and Die Cut the Flowers and Colored them with the same Distress Ink then used the Flower Sequins to create the Centers!! A Tiny Pearl Seed Bead finishes them off!! I Stamped and Die Cut the Sweet Little Bird and Colored it with Distress Ink and added more Clear Wink of Stella Glitter Marker!! I Layered it all together and I just LOVE the way it turns out!! =) I Stamped and Die Cut the Tree Trunk and the Grass and then the Sweet Little Tire Swing!! =) I added some Burlap String to make it look like the one I had when I was growing up!! Put it altogether following the Sketch and my card was done!!
I hope you'll stop by to see what the rest of the AMAZING DT created for today's Count Down!!
THANKS SO MUCH for stopping by today and I hope you have a FABULOUS WEEK!!
