Autumnal Birthday greetings

This is one of the cards I made for my mother's birthday in November. I think it is kind of unisex and doesn't automatically scream that the recipient is male or female.

I was hoping that the ink would bead (and it did) for the tree trunk just to create some bark texture. I think just played with the leaf stamps from the set and kept over stamping in different autumnal Memento inks.

The one thing I would absolutely change on this card is that I would have had the exact match memento ink pen for the brown lines on the kraft card base.

The layers are done so that the brown echoes the size of the image and the green the dimensions of the card base.

Card size - 8.5in x 5.5in
Cardstock - Archivers Kraft, Bazzill, Neenah
Stamps - Clear Dollar Stamps
Ink - Versamark, Memento - Summer Sky, Canteloupe, Desert Sand, New Sprout, Bamboo Leaves, Rhubard Stalk, Rich Cocoa.
