CAS Waltzingmouse Fanatics OLW159

Lots of masking and distress inking on this one. I've tried to use as many colours from the Waltzingmouse Fanatic Challenge and kept it to one layer for One Layer Wednesday Challenge on Karen's blog. The colours reminded me of Autumn and all the falling leaves, so I had to use Teeny Trees. Ideal for CAS-ual Friday's Challenge and Happy First Birthday to Fresh Squeezed Stamps
My biggest challenge was getting my masking tape less sticky, this is my second card as the first needs to be cropped and added as a layer to a new unripped card base. I've not added any glossy accents or stickles, as I love the smooth one layer feel of this card. This doesn't have to be posted for a bit so I might stickle & glossy accent my first card to see if I'll do it to this one.
