A sign that fall is around the corner.....

I received a request for a man's card, I always struggle with these one's as they are never easy to make. A while back, I found some really nice stamps at I Brake for Stamps, this one is called Geese in flight. I really like how this card turned out.

For me fall is not only the leaves changing colours but also the presence of Canadian Geese stopping in our fields for a break before continuing south for the winter.



I used WeR comstock collection and the woodgrain paper is from K&C which I pulled out from my old stock. I used Tim Holtz Alterations On the edge die. I added distress inks to the paper leaves to get the nice rich fall colours and used Spring Rain and Frost Glimmer Mist to add a shimmer to the backgroung. and My image is colored with copics.

I am entering my card in the following challenges
