Welcome to Challenge #34 for Pattie's Creations Design Challenge. The theme is Christmas and I had a very hard time deciding which image I wanted to use from her store. I finally decided to use the Holly Topiary because I had a flash of creativity when I saw it - to make the topiary rounded, just like it would be in real life. In order to do that, I printed the image several times (at first I thought I would cut out each individual leaf). Thankfully, I had a better idea. After coloring and cutting out the entire top portion (as opposed to individual leaves), I used one of my old fondant cake decorating tools to round the entire piece from the underside. It curled just the way I envisioned. Don't you love it when a plan comes together? Now to adhere it to the original image without messing it up. Out came my tallest pop dots, but it still wasn't tall enough for me. So I added a second layer of pop dots - just what I was looking for.
This Christmas challenge will run for three weeks, so you'll have plenty of time to upload your creations to Pattie's Creations challenge blog. Then get ready for a fun blog hop starting Dec 16. Check out all the awesome creations from the rest of the design team too.
