Savanna Sunrise

This card is all about the tree!  I have used this Stampscapes Spooky Branch many times when creating Halloween cards, but wanted to show you how nice it can look in another setting.  Notice how the tree is lighter on one side to give the illusion of light.

What I like about this card is that it doesn't depict a certain season.  Is it a spring day after a hard winter's frost?  Perhaps a chance of renewal ...

Thank you for taking the time to visit me today!
