Swing in the Oak Tree

     The Memory Box "Grand Oak Tree" die is one of the first dies I bought. I have never used it. When the LOTV "Milly Me and My Dog" stamp arrived last week, I wondered if the swing would blend with the oak tree. So what do you think? 

     I started with LOTV sketch #25.

  9. You have combined so many clever patterns and elements on this card! I really love the image of the girl on the swing and her little dog and I think it goes along so well with your cute sentiment! I also like the detailed tree and how you included it on the inside of the card, too. The flowers add so much wonderful texture. Really clever work here and I'm so glad you shared your talents with us here at the Simon Says Stamp Monday Challenge Blog!
