Fall colors and gratitude

This weekend has been crazy!  DH is hunting and that gives me ALL DAY, both days of the weekend, to play in my craft room.  Hence all the posts yesterday and today!  If I make um', I have to share them. LOL

There are so many challenges out there right now looking for fall/autumnal colors or leaves.  No how can I pass that by.  Especially since I have the perfect stamp set from Our Craft Lounge !  I also have the need for a thank you card (See previous post) to sent to Lynn for Lynn's Designer Creations for the yummy blog candy that I won at her site!

Not sure where the inside image or the sentiment come from (Please feel free to tell me).
The coloring is with Copics, the leaves onn the front images are stamped a second time, colored, cut out, clear embossed and placed on card with dimensionals.
The card edges are distressed and then inked with Tim Holtz distree inks.
A CB embossing border folder was used at the bottom of the card and then inked up.
There is bakers twine on the card and a leaft charm (from my blog candy) tied on.
The DP is from one of the DCWV photo stacks.

This card may be entered in the following challenges:
Our Craft Lounge:  Fall Foliage
Card Cupids:  Make a card to give away
Stamptacular Sunday Challenge:  Photo inspiration
Cupcake Inspiration:  Photo inspiration
The Artistic Stamper:  Autumnal Colors
Sundays with Crissy:  Thanks or Thanksgiving
ECP Challenge:  Autumn or Thanks
Just Some Lines:  Fall colors
