Four Season Tree

Hope you all had a great weekend! Mine was pretty busy and flew by...as usual! Today I have a card to share with you that I created for one of my best friends. I've had this design in my head for quite some time, so I took a break from my Christmas projects to make it. After several hours of stamping, lots of tedious cutting & rearranging, along with more stamping, tedious cutting & rearranging, I can't really say that it turned out like I imagined it. For sure it looked way better in my head! BUT since I went through all that work and I didn't have any more time...out in the mail it went. I'm sure you've had some cards like that as well! Anyways...here it is...

I love the winter and summer panels, but I think the spring panel is way too busy. I guess I should have chosen different patterned papers. There's just too much going on. I still like the concept of the four panels depicting each season, so I may try again. On a positive note, I love the little tire swing created from the jumbo eyelet, don't you? I saw that first on a card on SCS, I think.

Have a great day!
