Thank You card for male

Happy Friday!  Today's card is a "thank you" for a male.  It looked very much like a sympathy card after I finished the stamping so a quick trip to HL helped cure that with the addition of the colored papers.  I think this one will be headed to one of the storytellers at church in the preschool department.  The kids love his ventriloquist act with "Arnold" who shares God's messages in such a humorous and entertaining manner. 







The fall colors were inspired by  City Crafter Challenge sponsored by the Pixie Dust Paperie







The overlapping of the trees was inspired by the weave in the Paper Variety challenge week 7 sponsored by Apron Strings Designs










Supplies:
Inks:  Stampin' Up in baroque burgundy, old olive, close to cocoa, ruby red, more mustard, and really rust; Distress in vintage photo, antique linen, peeled paint and weathered wood. 
Stamps:  Lawn Fawn "thank you" and tree???? no name and bought about 7 yrs ago...
Other: Stickles in red, Tim Holtz edge distresser


Thank you so much for stopping by!  Have a happy and SAFE Halloween!  -Kelly

Beautiful card! Fall is my favorite time of year. Love how you stamped the trees and then did the foreground one on dimensional and added stickles. It makes the card! Thanks for sharing at the Paper Variety :)
