The Best Time To Plant A Tree.......

................Is twenty years ago. The next best time is now.  I have been using the Tall Conifer from 100 Proof Press.
The background was created with Distress Inks which I then spritzed with water.  I am quite pleased with this one, I think the trees work perfectly alone.
The text I found on a Google search, think it was listed as a Chinese proverb.

Thanks for stopping by, Tracy x x
