Tree of Life

Hi Everyone!  It's Ann here with a card that represents a New Year's Resolution for me:

Now that it's 2017, one of my New Year's resolutions is to spend more time with my family.

The tree in this card represents my family; my parents, sisters and brothers, nieces and nephews.  Normally, visiting family sounds easy, but in my case, my family is spread all over the U.S.   This year I want to turn a new leaf and visit my family in person, not just staying in touch online.

This is what the two dies look like:

 Sue Wilson Family Tree
Sue Wilson Pacific Ocean Collection Background die

I also used the Family Tree die for some scrapbook pages that I recently made for my nephew, Ronan:

As you can see, you can use this tree for all seasons just by changing the color of the leaves.

You can also use just parts of the branches and leaves as floral leaves like I did on this card with the Sue Wilson Mr and Mrs die:
