The little tree from Through the Trees (Papertrey) stumped me at first, but I soon realized it would be perfect for a grid card. Brilliance Pearlescent Beige ink is so lovely and subtle and shimmery when stamped on white cardstock, I just had to make a go of it with the little rhinestones that match so well.
