Autumn Splendor

This is my 3rd post today.  I have been able to play in my craft room most of the day!  What a wonderful thing!  Fall is definitely hitting here on the Oregon coast.  Beautiful morning, somewhat warm.  Then all of the sudden the clouds showed up, it cooled off and feels like rain.  Oh well, that pretty much describes most of our fall days.  LOL
This card was made by masking the top and bottom portions.  Memento inks in 3 depths of color were sponges on to make the background.  The trees were stamped in the lightest and 2nd lightest colors.  Then the masks were removed and the trees stamped again with the darkest of the colors.  The image was allowed to go into the blank areas at the top and bottom.
A sentiment was stamped, a piece of scrap ribbon tied on and Ta-Da!
A simple (and I think elegant) card.  This one will go to my dad along with some cookies at Thanksgiving.

This card will be entered in the following challenges:
Lots to Do Challenges:  Plain and Simple
Crazy 4 Challenges:  Fall-Autumn
