STV MIUM challenge and JUGS challenge

It has been awhile since I have posted, or even made a card.  I'm feeling a little rusty.  Squeek!  I need some oil.  We were visiting children and grand kids and had the best times.  School will start next week and then I will have all the time to craft that I want, but now is the time to spend with the kids.  Tomorrow, I will pick up the kids and we will do our usual summer day.  Have lunch at our favorite hamburger spot and then hit the pool.  The kids have become great swimmers.  All I have to do is keep throwing in the rings for them to fetch from the bottom of the pool.  It is endless!!!
In the last two days I made over 60 lunch box notes for the moms to put into their lunches.  Something I never had time to do when I was a mom. 
I did make a card that I can enter into two challenges, and let me tell you about them.  First is the  STVMIUM challenge we are to make a Fall Birthday card.  The JUGS challenge #255 is a photo entitled Farm Fresh.   I am entering this card in both of these challenges. 
Here is my card
Fall always reminds me of apple picking, something that we always did with the kids. 
I choose Cherry red CS from GKD and on that I layered a plaid that I made with gold, cherry red and black inks.  The image is from Harvest of Wishes, GKD, and is embossed with gold and colored with copic markers.  The greeting is from Tag lines and then I added the embellishments from my stash. 
Thanks for stopping by, I do enjoy and appreciate your comments, each and every one.
