an autumn birthday card. . . .

for my son:



I love fall and the beautiful colors to be seen everywhere you look this time of year.  I made the background of this card using distress inks spritzed with water on a craft sheet. The trees were heat embossed.  This is one of my favorite tree stamps - I have quite a few in my collection.

We had a lovely trip to North Carolina.  Lots of eating, shopping, eating, visiting and, did I mention eating?  I don't think I need to eat anything for at least a month!

Thanks for stopping by.

Sending this card over to Word Art Wednesday.
