A double challenge

This card today is actually for both the card patterns sketch challenge but also for the Stampin'Sisters in Christ challenge to use fall colors and/or leaves so I thought I met that requirement! I used Passages paper from CTMH and the Hunting SS(retired,sorry) nothing says fall to me like hunting, in upstate NY where I live fall is marked by the begginning of hunting season especially for White tailed deer! So I thought this was the perfect card for someone who also loves hunting plus I just don't make to many masculine cards! I also used CTMH's watercolor pencils and blending pen to color! I actually redid this card about 4 times last night before I settled on this image but by then it was to dark to photograph. Today is also a sad day, we had our beef cattle hauled away to go to the butchers-okay so this is sad and yummy I mean happy, but my husband also lost his grandmother yesterday which is sad but also a blessing as she has been suffering with Althztheimers(sp/) for a few years! Just a reminder to hug someone you love today!
