The Promise

Good morning! We have snow in the Trinity Alps and on Mount Shasta showing with a promise of things to come! Fall is in full swing! I love the beauty of it but dread the cold.
My card is for a stamp TV friend who's DH is really ill and needs encouragement. So with him in mind I made this card for the challenge Lee has for potluck Friday.
We are to use words only , no stamped images. I love this sentiment from Melanie's set "A Year of Leaves" and thought it would be perfect for my card.
I think the shiny paper is from Michaels called platinum. I stamped the sentiment and using a mask from Tim Holtz sponged with creamy caramel from SU. The DP is from memory box and the self stick brads are from Gina K.
The button is basic grey and some scape ribbon finished off my card.
Thanks for stopping by and have a great day.

Really beautiful card. Love the clean simple lines and how you've off-set the mat. Also think the paper piercing is a nice touch.
