Very simple card

Good morning everyone, methinks Autumn really has arrived this morning. I had a wonderful day out with my daughter yesterday, with a smidgin' of retail therapy thrown in for good measure. We had intended going to the Branston Water Park but somehow missed the turning so we picnicked at Blithfield Reservoir, which we found by accident, instead. It was so peaceful and tranquil there watching the sailing dinghies and the fishermen in their boats while we ate. All in all it was a happy accident missing the turning for our intended destination, and we can go there another time.
By the way, those "geese" in my last post were actually swans :o)
 Anyway, onto my card which I think could possibly be suitable for a male.



Nothing very exciting about this card, but I am very happy with the way it turned out. I cut and folded the  basecard from some beige card I had in my stash. I bought it at PDA many moons ago. I also used it for the moon, lightly inked, and for the mat. The corrugated card is also from PDA but I bought that last week. I used bronze pearlised card for the Tom Holtz trees inside and outside and a Papermania greeting stamp.
I hope you like it :o)
