Thanks for the Help

One of my sons is incredibly gifted when it comes to mechanical things.  Recently, he drove to our place (30 min) to fix one of our cars which was running so poorly it was unsafe to drive.  I don't know how many times he has bailed us out.  He has spent so many hours over the years keeping our cars and trucks running.  And of course, he won't take any payment.   I am sending this card to him to thank him once again for helping us out. 

The tree and leaves are from an Stampin' Up sets and I am not sure where the sentiment is from.  I stamped onto a textured cardstock which I got from Kraft Outlet. I used several inks to sponge in the colors. 
The sketch is CPS
The colors I used are colors in the Stamp n Send challenge

Other challenges:
Stampin Sisters in Christ - tree
Kraft Journal - ink it up
Your Next Stamp - anything
Simon Says - photo of tree
