Crafty Cardmakers Challenge 76 - Indian Summer

Our challenge over at Crafty Cardmakers is called Indian Summer and is hosted by Mynnette
Mynnette would like to see a created scene using any nature themed stamps you have, digis welcome. Examples of nature themed stamps are leaves, grasses, wildflowers, etc. Anything nature and autumn! Plus use only oranges, yellows, and reds for colors (black/brown and white/cream are allowed as well). Perhaps a sentiment of gratitude or autumn would also be appropriate!
Here is some inspiration for you:
We are sponsored by Di's Digi Downloads who are offering a $10 voucher to one lucky person.
 
 
I decided to get out my brayer to make my card and an ink pad I've had for simply ages but was still in it's wrappings!  It's the gorgeous Aurora ink pad by Brilliance.  After brayering the ink onto white card I used a torn piece of paper and Stampin' Up Basic Gray to sponge some foreground, then added the lovely pheasant and grasses from the SU Autumn Days set in the same ink.  Finally I added my sentiment from the Hero Arts Anytime Messages.
