Fall splendor

I don't imagine that this is a well known fact, but October is "Pastor Appreciation" month.  So, I've created this little card to express to our pastor how much we appreciate him and all he does.  And I think it proves that you can use glitter and rhinestones on a "man" card.  Black rhinestones seem to be less flashy than their counterparts, but still give a polished look.
 I modeled the image after this card I found while browsing on Pinterest.  Love the look it gave.  I didn't have any stickles like were used on the original, so I just dabbed a little glue around on the trees and sprinkled on some SU! diamond dust glitter.  You can see more of the glitter in the picture below.

Oh, Heather, I am very aware of Pastor Appreciation Month, and I LOVE it! And I love this card, and so will your pastor! It's beautiful (in a very masculine way), and I love the black rhinestones and glitter on the trees! A beautiful way to expression your appreciation! So glad you've joined us this week for the ODBD Shining the Light challenge! Hugs, Cheryl
