Another parchment tree

I made another parchment tree. I used a different border this time. I love doing grid/cut work on parchment!
The tree is printed on the parchment before I start the grid work. All the lighter areas on the tree are embossed from behind.

I've entered this in the following challenges...
YNS Challenge  Anything goes
Crafty Creations   White plus one color
Paper Sundaes  Christmas

These are so fun to do!  If you want instructions and the tree images go to Vickie's blog! She has lots more images.
