Autumn Thanks Card

I don't often use Kraft cardstock, but as I was planning an Autumn type card I decided it would be the perfect base. Some time ago, I had rescued a ribbon from some flowers, so I decided to use that as the central focal area with a green strip behind it to add some colour.

I used Stampin' Up "Vintage Leaves" stamps & "Leaflet Framelit" dies, the leaves were inked in various Autumnal shades.  I also used a Sizzix die called "Back To Nature #2".

I stamped the sentiment (Stampin' Up - Thoughtful Branches) and then die cut two oval shapes to be mounted one on top of the other and then after a lot of debate stuck everything down.  However I wasn't happy with it - so much so that I was close to putting it in the bin.  

I decided to sleep on it and fortunately, inspiration struck in the middle of the night, which resulted in me getting up and faffing with the card while it was still dark outside.  I am happier with it now.
