Seasons of Beauty

This beautiful tree was in Joel and Sandy's front yard. 
Unfortunately, they had to have it cut down this year. 
So this is a tribute to its beauty in all seasons. 
This sketch is by Julie Bonner and is for the 
week #37 challenge at The Scrap Room.
All paper is by Fancy Pants from a number of their lines. 
I cut the die cuts from the same paper as the photo is mounted on to create a monotone look and to keep the emphasis on the pictures.
I used Tim Holtz distress inks 
and pearls from Queen, Kaiser, and Basic Grey.
The title letters are Fancy Pants also (except the "of")
I've added a bunch of close-ups. You can click on them to enlarge them if you like!


Thanks for looking!
I appreciate your comments and would love it if you would follow my blog!

That is beautiful. I have being wanting to try a similar LO with a tree in our front yard. May just have to "scraplift". Love it.
