Coloured Woodgrain

***This is my second post for the day.  For my A Passion for Papertrey post plase click here!***

A super CAS card for the Tuesday Trigger challenge at the Moxie Fab World. I was inspired by the colours and the woodgrain in the picture.  I love the autumn colours of the trees so I used the "Season's Greetings" sentiment - that way this could be a Christmas card or an autumn card.  And that makes it eligible for The Paper Players challenge to add a fall element to your card.  I realise this may be a bit of a stretch but I'm going there anyway!  :)
Supplies Used:
Cardstock:  (White) Pacon, (Cajun Craze)  Stampin' Up
Stamps:  (Small tree from Holiday Tree, Large Tree from Season's Greetings) Hero Arts, (Sentiment from Merry Messages) Stampendous
Ink:  (Cajun Craze, Always Artichoke, More Mustard) Stampin' Up

Impression Plates:  (Linen, Woodgrain) PTI
