I love trees.
Stark bare Winter trees with frost glistening on the branches, Spring trees with leaves unfurling and blossom appearing, Summer trees when their majestic shapes are filling blue skies and Autumn trees, when the whole colour spectrum ranging from brown to green to reds, golds and oranges can be seen along across all the landscape wherever you live be it town or country.
This card was made using one of the Tall Tress themeplates from Elusive Images.
The main background is courtesy of Flickr (with a few stamped flourishes added!), digitally lightened and printed onto an inkjet tranparency.
I stamped the trees and words in 'Espresso' ink onto the original darker background and layered onto cream then brown card.
I finished by adding some brown ribbon and a leaf button.
