Leafy Tree


In this teacher's Thank You card, I tried to follow the oval / almond shape idea through all the elements: card base, image, embellishments and sentiment.

I distressed the leaf shaped frames, then used piercing on the single leaf on the top left (by the way, Flourishes Timeless Tuesdays has a piercing challenge, too!) and faux stitching on the sentiment. I used a silver gel pen which is why it doesn't show up very well even on the detail photo, sorry! I also included a fabric leaf and a Clare Curd Signature Range flower - I couldn't resist its almond-shaped leaves.

Hi, Agnes! Pretty card! I like the cheerful, bright colors. And the repetition of elements really brings it unity! :-)
