The Giving Tree - that keeps on giving!

My sister's favorite book as a child was "The Giving Tree". Even though she read the Afrikaans translation. So when I saw The Giving Tree at GinaK Designs it went to the top of my wish list and it was my Christmas gift to me!

I had SO MUCH FUN making these and your combinations are so versatile!

 Apple tree: Added some Glossy Accents (Ranger) to the apples
 Swinging: Added some twine to the swing
 Bird house: Popped a second image of the bird house on top and punch a hole through the front for more dimension. Click on image to enlarge.
 Fruit tree: Added Glossy Accents again.

This card was made for a friend of my mother's.  "Veels Geluk" means congratulations in Afrikaans. The letters were die-cut ...
