An Autumn Thankyou

My husband asked me to make him a masculine thank you card. So, I thought it would be fun to use this cute little owl from Unity Stamps July kit of the month. I paper pieced it and adhered it to my card with foam tape. The background is also a stamp from this set. I stamped it in Versamark on Papertrey's Dark Chocolate cardstock. I made the branch with Papertrey's Take a Bough set and stamped the leaves with my Autumn Leaves kaleidacolor inkpad. The sentiment is from Papertrey's Out On a Limb set. (Link is to the revised set, the sentiment on my card is from the original set.) The ribbon is from Target's dollar spot.
This is the inside of my card. I used the same pattern paper that I used for my owl on the front and stamped a portion of my branch stamp and leaves. I also distressed the edges just a little bit and sponged them with Antique Linen distress ink.
Supplies I used: Stamps-owl, tree background (Unity Stamps July Kit of the Month), branch and leaves (Papertrey Take a Bough), sentiment (Papertrey Out on a Limb,original version); Paper-Papertrey Kraft, Dark Chocolate, pattern paper (unknown); Ink-Palette Burnt Umber, Autumn Leaves Kaleidacolor, Antique Linen distress ink; Accessories-ribbon (Target dollar spot), Heidi Swapp distresser, foam tape

Have a blessed day!
