Tree tag

I was really thrilled with some soft duster brushes that I bought from Inkylicious at the NEC, they give a soft effect that looks like very skilled brayering.  I have a brayer and can brayer reasonably, I have sponges, cut and dry foam, stippling brushes, but these give a different finish that I love.  I'm having a few problems with the stamps I bought with the brushes, they don't seem to want to cling to the blocks, but I managed to stamp this out as a card for a man, fairly unembellished.  The sentiment is Kaisercraft, from a set, stamps are all Inkylicious.
This card is for the following challenges:
No Time to Stamp - tags
Alphabet Challenge - B is for Bird
Dutch Dare - clean & simple
Papertake Weekly - cards for men (penny for the guy)
Crafty Emma - forever Autumn
Stamp, scrap and doodle - Fall
Digi Doodle Shop - Fall for me

Ali Factory - anything you'd find in the garden
