Especially Challenging

Just a card. Such a challenging inspiration over at The Play Date Cafe! I struggled with this one to use the colors moss, slate, burlap, and bark. I'm not sure I nailed it but I gave it a shot. Since this was 'especially' challenging I made an 'especially' for you card.

For You
~Base card - PaperTrey Ink Kraft cardstock
~Layer of slate colored cardstock - edge edged using Martha Stewart punch, stamped with Stampin' Up Old Olive ink and Stampin' Up Weathered background stamp
~Three leaves in the corner (tiny buttons with the shanks cut off)
~Tag with grosgrain ribbon layer on crumpled tan paper, and layer of dark slate die cut using square scallop from Spellbinders
