Sending Heartfelt Thanks

Good morning and welcome to another Monday. : ) Funny how those come around before you're ready for them isn't it?

I spent a good portion of my weekend stamping and working on all that fun household stuff like laundry and grocery shopping. I postponed cleaning because Rich decided it was time to seal the deck before winter which meant (Don't ask me why) that all of our deck furniture somehow ended up inside. My dining room is a little crowded at the moment so moving anything to vacuum is out of the question. Yeah...I'm shaking my head too. Let me know if you figure out the thought process that went before THAT decision.

So today's card is a little step into Fall. Our temps were a bit Fall-ish this weekend so I suppose that means it's only a matter of time before we say goodbye to the warmer weather.
I started with a 4-3/4 x 9-1/2 piece of River Rock cardstock. I backed it with a 5 inch square of Mellow Moss and a 5-1/4 square of Chocolate Chip.
The front of the card is layered with two strips of designer paper that were trimmed with a punched edge of Chocolate Chip. I used the Scallop Edge border punch for both.
These pieces were adhered to the card and then set aside.
The center stamped panel is a piece of River Rock stamped with Basic Brown. The tree is from a Unity set called Naturally You. I colored it with Mellow Moss, Always Artichoke and Dusty Durango markers and then added a Tangerine Tango punched heart to one of the branches with a foam dimensional to pop it up a bit.
Next, I layered the tree on a piece of Mellow Moss and then tucked the ends of two pieces of folded over tangerine grosgrain ribbon behind. A couple of antique brass brads hold them in place and add a little metallic interest. This piece was then layered on Tangerine Tango and again on Chocolate Chip before getting adhered to the card.
The sentiment was stamped with Basic Brown as well layered on Always Artichoke and Mellow Moss and adhered with dimensionals.

Thanks for stopping in today! Have a great day.
