Autumn card - Friends

Good day everyone,

We have a new challenge at Paradise of Stamps, it's now a monthly challenge
Our theme for October is

Autumn or Halloween

In Canada our Thanksgiving is October 10th,  
so I created a cute little card with regards to being thankful for a Friend 

No designer papers, I used distress inks on watercolor paper
and sprayed with water.  Added foam sheet on back 
Fossilized Amber, Fired brick, Peeled paint, Mustard Seed, Wild Honey
Spiced Marmalade and Rusty Hinge

Images are colored with copics, leafs are distressed
inks on a lighter weigh watercolour paper (much easier for punches)

Cat: E35, E33, E31, E30
Bird: Y19, Y15, Y17, E31

Sentiment as stamped several times using the same
distress inks, thank goodness for my Misti 
Them I heat embossed with Ranger Frosted Antiquities

Inside is a sentiment from Penny Black - Special Thoughts set
