Can You Identify This Leaf?

Leaves are some of our most popular thermofax screens.  Many people are easily able to visualize a fabric design with leaves and you can make them fit any season too.  Since the beginning of our business selling thermofax screens, we have had a screen we called “Sweet Gum”.  
Recently, while looking up at the gum tree from which (we thought) this leaf came, it was realized that it must be mislabeled.  A quick search on Google images confirms that “no, that leaf doesn’t resemble a sweet gum at all”.

So, the hunt is on!  We have looked and looked and cannot identify this leaf.   If you know what type of leaf this is and can point us in the direction of confirming its identity, we would like to reward you with a free screen of this leaf, or any other small screen of your choice from the PG Fiber2Art Etsy shop!
Comment on this post with your guess as to its identity and a source where we can confirm that information.  We will announce the winner (we hope there is one!) on August 15.  Good luck!


  1. Perhaps a Big-tooth Aspen populus grandidentata https://www.minnesotawildflowers.info/tree-shrub/big-tooth-aspen http://www.adirondacklifemag.com/blogs/2012/09/25/legend-of-the-fall/

  2. It looks like a type of Oak Tree, maybe an Interior Live Oak.

  3. It looks more like a quaking Aspen. So maybe D.Ann is correct. From your answer, it did not look like a guess.

  4. I'm in the UK - it looks like an aspen to me

  5. I agree with a big tooth aspen, based on my native tree of Virginia ID book. Also. Looks similar to the large photo in the middle of this web page http://www.fcps.edu/islandcreekes/ecology/bigtooth_aspen.htm
