Whiff of Joy #32 - Blue & Brown

Brown and blue are the colours at Whiff of Joy this week - two of my favourites - I love brown with any colour, especially pastels.
I chose to do a 'boy' card as I have a few boy birthdays coming up.
Not sure what the paper is - no name - but perfect for what I wanted. Iembossed the brown behind Oakley with the Forest branch folder, decided it looked like a tree trunk and added some leaves - thought flowers would be to girly so I used circles and thought they could represent berries or acorns or even conkers. As the leaves and 'berries' are brown it must be autumn so Oakelys apples had to be Russet reds which I think are autumn apples. (Yeah right I think I've landed on Cloud 1, Cuckoo Land again) . The sentiments are Inkadinkado which I stamped onto die-cut leaves I've had forever and I've just noticed the card candy I've added to the corners (again because they look like berries) - the top left one has slipped, I expect it's well and truly stuck down by now.

What a great 'boy' card!! This is one type of card I struggle with and that WOJ stamp makes it a lot easier.

Love your colouring and those papers are fab!! Are those leaves die-cuts??
