tears.(good memories)

Paper Popsicles Moosetrack Monday Freebie Challenge with Buttons

I decided to make the digi tree a clothes tree. My niece's graduation is soon
and I came up with this card early this morning when I could not sleep.
I drew dress, shoes, shawl and hanger and then scanned them to my
computer. I then paper pieced and glued them on with pop dots to give
them some height. Then added the extras. I think it turned out  good-even
though it took a lot longer than other cards. Hope you like it.
Inside card I added fancy shoes  at bottom right.
Oh and I added 2 buttons.
