One Powerful Hour: Tree of Life

The Theme this week at One Powerful Hour is:
Tree of Life

I found this wonderful quote to use...
My Blank Note Card kinda 'grew' from there.

"All theory, dear friend, is gray,
but the golden tree of life springs ever green."
~Johann Wolfgang von Goethe~

Corrugated Cardboard is a Starbucks Cup Wrap.
Quote was crumpled, then flattened before inking.
I used a Digital Stamp for the tree, re-coloring it in black (it was dark gray) along the branches & trunk.
Martha Stewart Glitter Glue and 2 shades of Green Glitter for the Tree 'leaves'.
When all that was dry...
3D Crystal Lacquer dripped on thick for the 'fruit', then covered in Gold Glitter.
All inks are Stampin' Up!
Card-base/Envelope are DCWV.
