Autumn Inspired Card- YMH design team project

 I want to share this Autumn Inspired card that I created.. Its a "feel good" card for my sis-in-law who is terminally ill... I also got a lot of inspiration from Tim Holtz and his wonderful distress techniques.. layering multiple ink colors onto cardstock can make anything look professionally made, even my cards..LOL
So, with that said, here is my card..

and this is just a 4x6 piece of white cardstock that I cut to size, layered 4 different shades of Tim Holtz distress  inks all over it and then stamped the top of it with a word stamp.. Then cut a piece of colored paper by Bo Bunny distressed the edges and finally glued it down..
cut the top note, star and leaves with my cricut, which I also distressed with Tim Holtz Distress inks and the ink applicator..  Finally added some prima lace trim and did some computer generated journaling for the sentiment..
and for a few close  ups of the card:
The inside of the card.. which I have kept it simples, since all of the details can be found on the cover of the card :)

and for the supplies I used:

cardstock: White and orange
Paper by Bo Bunny
Stamps by : Tim Holtz
distress tool and ink applicator
computer generated journaling
cricut imagine: star, top note and leaves.
