DT card for the Squirrel and the Fox # 6: Photo Inspiration

 See above for The Squirrel and the Fox Inspiration Picture

Hi everyone. It's Squirrel and the Fox challenge time again. I am really excited about this one. The challenge is a photo inspiration. Here is my interpretation.This photo is one my daughter only recently took (before all the rain hit Sydney) This really shows off the beautiful purple/mauve of the Jacaranda tree again the gorgeous blue Aussie sky.
It's a shame that the Jacaranda only flowers in November in the eastern and northern states. It's just such a gorgeous tree. It flowers before the leaves a fully formed. Once the flowers have ended then the tree turns green with it's lacey and delicate leaves.I love looking out into the suburban bush areas, where you can see all the wonderful greens and the purple blotches of all the Jacarandas.

I had a plain tree digi that I found on the net for free and I just added lots of dots to make the flowers. I used 4 or 5 different shades. I always use Promarkers for all my colouring. The fence is a Martha Stewart punch, the butterflies are a SU die, and the border punch is also from MS.
I am entering this card into the following challenges:

Sweet Stampin: Punches and Dies
The Sisterhood of Crafters: Polkadots
Birthday Sundaes : Birthday Card
