Fall Birthday

September is a very full month around here, there are several birthdays and anniversaries as you will see in following posts. This card is for my brother-in-law. The sketch and the challenge to use yellow (mine is really yellow with a strong orange tint, but it is yellow) is from The Pixie Cottage #86 challenge. This week's challenge from The Paper Variety is to use stamps--digital, rubber, clear, whatever. The papers are all DCWV, the tree image is from Papertrey Ink's "Through the Trees" set. The trees are actually bare, but I wanted the fall look, so I tapped in leaves with red, orange, yellow, and green markers. The sentiment is from the same set and the little leaf overstamping the sentiment is from PTI's "Places Please". And the raffia: rescued from the trash for the "sometime I might need it" moment. It was the perfect finishing touch.
