A lot of leaves birthday card

Hello again stamping friends, my eyes are better now after a few hours. YAY! I wanted to share this card with you that I stamped the other day after seeing an idea in a stamping magazine. I need a card for my brother in law soon so thought I would make a card suitable for a male and I think this is it. I love how it turned out and  it was so easy. Once again I used a color that will be retiring. I love this River Rock color so I am very sad to see it going. : )   My card base is River Rock and my top layer is Very Vanilla. I simply stamped the leaves from both the Secret Garden and Summer Silhouettes stamp sets. I did my lightest color of River Rock ink and then Old Olive and then Early Espresso. Then I stamped the greeting form the retired Happiest Birthday Wishes set in Early Espresso ink. I tied the Early Espresso Baker's Twine around the card and tied on a Naturals button on it. Very Easy Peasy but cute I thought. Don't you? 

Here are the details: 
Stamp Sets: Summer Silhouettes, Secret Garden, Happiest Birthday Wishes
Card Stock: River Rock, Very Vanilla
Inks: River Rock, Old Olive, Early Espresso
Tools and Accessories: What no Big Shot? WOW, Bakers Twine, Naturals Button, Glue Dots.   

I am off to the grocery to get stuff to make supper for Irv. I hope to be back tomorrow God willing. 
Thank you so much for stopping by today and have a lovely day creating something cute.  
Live Love Laugh, Stamp!
Hugs, Bev
