Just a tree

Good evening all. It's the end of another wet dreary day.... I keep reminding myself that we need the rain...but not all the time, surely! I'm so looking forward to the time when I can sit out in the garden after work, and watch the light change. I  love it when the light is starting to go and the trees are silhouetted against the darkening sky. I tried to create that kind of look with this card. It hasn't photographed well, unfortunately. The image is embossed with UTEE and the flash has reflected from the shiny surface, but hopefully you can see what I was trying to achieve! I love making these CAS cards, they really make me think!
I am using the card for these challenges
