Paper Temptress ~ FAMILY~ a card...

Hello Crafters!
Hope this finds you doing well.
I was inspired by Contadina K's card. I wanted to make a simple but meaningful card. Thank you CONTADINA for the inspiration!!!
I used the Cryogen White as a base for this A2 card. I inked the bottom piece with Antique Linen Distress Ink. Then I chose from my Brown Bag Kraft Package #2. I used the Brown Bag paper for the inset.  I stamped some leaves(3rd Eye) on the background and then embossed the image using my Anna Griffin "Aviary" folder. I stamped the leaves onto Heavenly White 80#.
Below is my card titled Family:

PT Family

Here are a couple of close ups:

I used several Distress Inks to color the leaves. 
Hopefully as we enter into the Thanksgiving season we can all find things to be grateful for.
