Thanks so Much

If I didn't know better, I'd say it must be Fall!  So nice to have cooler temps & some rain.  You may remember hubby found a man who served for a few months in WWII on the same ship as his dad.  The men didn't know each other (800 men), but it was still very special to talk with someone who was in the same place at the same time.  Here's the card hubby is sending him & his daughter. 
The IO Collage Leaf 5 was inked with Distress Markers festive berries, peeled paint & wild honey.  I used my Mini MISTI so I could ink, mist & stamp until I got the look I wanted.  When it was dry, I over-stamped in Delicata Golden Glitz. 
I added some brown splatters before attaching the IO die cut sentiment (DIE234-M) which I cut from kraft & inked with VersaMagic Jumbo Java.  I'm entering IO Harvest Hellos, AAA Cards, SSS MondaySSS Wednesday & Die Cut Divas. Thanks so much for taking time to stop by.
