Accordian Flower Tree

Inspired by a recent video Kelly made, she made accordion flowers into Christmas ornaments.  I decided to take a stab at making an accordion flower, but made it into a tree top instead! I kept the background plain because I wanted the accordion tree top to be the highlight. My little critters were colored with Copics and adhered with pop dots… I made this card for the OTWC. I especially liked it this week because she chose more summery colors, so I was forced to get off my Christmas card kick, lol!!!

What all did you do for the Veterans Day holiday? Yesterday, we took my son ice skating. That was hysterical to say the least. I hugged the wall almost the entire time. The last few minutes, I got the urge to let go and I am proud to say, none of us fell down…..
