Autumn conjures up a lot of strong images, and this pared-down background uses one of the most instantly identifiable icons of the season. It features a small tree shedding reddish leaves onto the ground while a light shadow adds depth. The tree's small size shows that fall is a time for renewal and growth, and the background's mild eggshell color creates a pleasing effect. This graphic uses a simple, cartoonish art style in order to keep things fun and accessible. It works well on its own or as an add-on element for greeting cards, websites, and other projects.
