Covered Bridge

I haven't made too many fall cards and I just love fall and all the colors. I got to play a bit before I have to go to work and I decided I really needed to make a fall card.

This stamp is from stubby stampers. We used to have a covered bridge near the town I grew up in until an arsonist decided we shouldn't. Made me so sad. I have fond memories of sitting inside the bridge at night. Crazy kids we were. lol
This is colored with copics except the fence which I used a prisma color pencil. I can't make those tiny, tiny lines with copics very well. There are some stickles on the water. Ran some DCWV paper through the dotted embossing folder and then sanded them. I don't know who did the dp. The swirl is a die cut from memory box. And some tiny dew drops are in the corner. I hung the heart swirl from a piece of ribbon and attached it with some scor-tape.
You could make this image into a summer card or spring card as well. Couldn't you see kids jumping into the water. Brr! It's too cold right now but in the summer.
Now off to get ready for work. I would much rather stay home and play more. I should be thankful I have a job. lol
 I'm using this as my entry for the BookEndz book club here. We are reading the book The Mercy of Thin Air. I certainly would not have picked this book on my own. Some of it I like and some of it I don't but sometimes it is good to read something out of your comfort zone.
