PPA64 - Fall Inspiration

This week the Pals have a great Inspiration Photo of fall. I was inspired by the leaves on the ground in my backyard this morning. My trees are starting ot look like the trees in this card.

I used a texture plate but the picture doesn't show it very well but it reminds me of bark on a tree.

I also used Hemp Twine instead of ribbon to keep the natural feel to the card.

I used my favoroite fall colors in this card, they seem to be all over my backyard and up and down the street that I live on.
