Fall Line Up

It's my sweet husband's birthday tomorrow.  We have been married for 35 years and have been together since we were 16 years old.  That 41 years.  Hard to believe that all those years have past in a flash!  This card is for him and represents all of the changes we have experienced.  I was inspired by the sketch challenge going on right now at Freshly Made Sketches #200.  I must admit...It is new to me.  
Where have I been!?  They have a really exciting line up of prizes for celebrating along with them!  I have added this new to me challenge to my list!




I had a blast water colouring a sheet with distress inks and then cutting out all of these little trees.  I have some left over, so you may be seeing more of these in the future :)
The sentiment is a favourite of mine from a  very old SU set.  I made the "background" trees with the same die cut trees from fun foam.  I only wish that they were of a lighter and more faded colour. 
I will also be adding this to 
SSS Work it Wednesday - Die Cuts
I used some of those :)
