As  I  couldn't  decide  which  season  the  tree  should be in .I  chose to   make  all four.  I  printed  the  season  words on  glossy  paper  . I  wanted the  colours to  be  appropriate  for  the  seasons  but  subtle  ,hence  the pastel  colours  . The  tree  stamp  was  a  freebie  one  and I  stamped it  with  brown  Memento  ink  . I matted   gold  mirri  and  ombre  papers  from Little Claire  designs  which I  debossed woth  an  embossilicious  leaf  folder . The  die  cut  cirdcles  are  from  nesting  circle  dies  and each of the trees  are  decorated with   stickles  and  liquid pearls  . I just had  to  use  the  sentiment  sticker  !! It  seemed  so  appropriate  .

When  I had  finished it  I  found  the  background  paper  from  Little Claire  designs, It is  from  their  paper  packs  and matched  the flowers  well.  This  6  x6  paper  wasn't  quite  big  enough  for  the gatefold  card  so I  designed my own  backing paper  behind it  . The  flowers fence  and  grass  were  die  cut  and  I  added  Stickles  to  the  flowers A  sentiment  from my  stash  completed  the  card .

In order  to  get  the  alcohol  markers  to  show up  ,I used  a  white  pen  within  the outline  and  the  pens on  top  , I  also  used  stickles  and  glossy  accent  on  these  , The  border  is  a Tonic  die  on  gold  mirri  ,the  stop  a  flower  from  my  stash  , I  added  stickers  and  card  candi  to  complete  the  card  .
