I had been wanting to use these skeleton leaves that a generous friend gave to me a year ago and never got around to doing much with. After seeing some lovely fall cards from stampinbuddies and on Pinterest I decided to make this one. Using Sweet Mango CS and Gathered Twigs Distress ink, I first cut and scored the card base and the Z fold strip. Then I stamped the leaves as shown and added the sentiment from same set randomly. The horse stamp is an old wooden block stamp and after stamping with versamark and heat embossing clear I fussy cut him out. I adhered him to the fold strip and added a small die cut piece of grass along the bottom. The fence is a purchased die cut and I glued that on top of the rest. Before gluing the Z fold added the 2 white strips so I would have somewhere to personalize the card. I also stamped the word grateful on the front. Using a tree stamp from the GKD Wetlands set I added the trees and heat embossed those with a shimmery gold powder. The random dots were bits left from hole punching some cs and I picked out the colours that seemed to work best for this card.
