2016 Brother's Birthday Card

Crafty Cardmakers challenge this fortnight is 'Autumn'. This can include anything associated with the season: colours, fall scenes, pumpkins, leaves, etc. You can also create anything you like such as, cards, tags, projects as long as it meets the challenge theme and rules. Have fun and create!

I made a card for my brother using a stamp 'Birthday Turtle' from  'QKR'. I went with fall colours and some 'falling' leaves. The  button and twine are for added interest.The green background paper is dry embossed and all the papers are Stampin  UP.  The leaves were die cut/punches borrowed from a friend. The image was coloured with Prismacolor Markers.

Aaaah layers, sometimes hard to pull off and other times it all comes together relatively easy. Such was the case with this card, it just came together. Six layers counting the ribbon.. The image is from Mo Manning and is coloured with PrismaMarkers.
