Thank you card

I almost said, Happy Monday! the I realized it is actually Tuesday.  My kids did not have school yesterday and I'll probably have my days screwed up the rest of the week.

I picked up some real wood paper (?) from my LSS recently and wanted to try it out on a card.  I feel funny saying "real wood paper" since all paper comes from wood, but this paper is like...fresh wood.   I got the thick cherry 12x12 sheet and cut out a piece with a circle nestie.  I really like the look the wood gives to this card.  Colored the image from Autumn Abundance (PTI) with copics.  Cardstock is all PTI, terracotta tile, melon berry, rustic white.  Ribbon is terracotta tile too.  I've got the sewing machine out, so you'll be seeing lots of stitching.



Thanks for dropping by!
