Autumn Thank you

I made another card today (very productive card weekend!) trying to play along with a few challenges. I have tons of autumn cards, and didn't really need another, but I have been wanting to make a thank you card for our local farmer, whom we get a weekly surprise box of fresh produce from each week.  This year we did a share of the crop thing, where we paid up front in the spring for the whole season, and they each week, depending on the harvest, we get a different basket of stuff.  We have been loving the fresh farm harvested produce all summer long, and feel so fortunate to have found a local farmer that puts such care in to the food.  

For the card, I stamped the sentiment and image from Marks Finest Papers in black ink, and then coloured the image with copics.  I once again used the new A2 Card Creator dies by Spellbinders.  I also dug out and dusted out some old stamps and dies from Heartfelt Creations, which I used to make the background paper and leaf embellishments.  I love these leaf embellishments, they dress up any autumn flavoured card.

Speedy TV's Simple Salutations - Fall/Autumn
Scrapbooking Cafe Online - Fall/Halloween
Crazy for Challenges - Anything Goes with a Fall Twist
Creative Card Crew - Tree
Creative Belli Challenge - Fall/Autumn (using forgotten embellishments)
