Autumn Birthday

Welcome back!  The card I have to share today was made for Friday Mashup to use fussy cutting (my 2nd entry) and the SUO Challenge to make something masculine.  A co-worker at work is having a birthday soon, so he will be receiving this card using autumn colors and images.

The beautiful leaf from Best of Autumn was embossed with clear embossing powder on watercolor paper, colored with an Aquapainter and cut out with my Paper Snips.  It was mounted on a Cherry Cobbler flag stamped with the same image in Versamark and the sentiment from the Wetlands stamp set.

One of the more clean and simple cards I've made but I think it works best for a masculine card.

Below are the links to the challenges.  Please swing by and see the great DT examples and play along if you are able:

Thanks so much for dropping by!  I'd love to hear from you if you have a moment to leave a message.  I hope the rest of your week is enjoyable!
