Falling Leaves



IF YOU"RE LOOKING FOR THE WHIMSICAL WEDNESDAY POST, PLEASE SEE POST BELOW!
Hello everyone! I have a card today that I made for several challenges. I had so much fun making this card and I love how it turned out.
I cut the tree from Live Simply at 3 inches. I inked the edges and did some highlighting on the owl with a black pen. The leaves are from a punch and I also inked the edges on them too. For the bottom I just tore a piece of paper, inked the edges, and added more leaves. The tag I cut by hand and stamped it with a stamp from My Craft Spots Happy Fall set. I inked the edges, added a leaf to it, and tied it on with Deep Rust colored crinkle ribbon from Prairie Bird Boutique.
I am going to enter this into the following challenges:
More Than Favors CCCC- Use Live Simply
Scrappy Mom's Terrific Tuesday- Use Country Life or similar cut. I saw a similar tree on that cartridge.
My Craft Spots Monday Challenge- Happy Harvest
Thanks for looking and have a great day!
