Another Thinking of You for son-in-law

I scored bit at a yard sale last week end - got lots of fabulous papers, and a lovely Close to my Heart stamp set, including this Thinking of You stamp.  I could have purchased a lot more, but I am trying hard to be reasonable!!!  This is another card for our son-in-law who will be spending the next six weeks at a rehab facility, while he has therapy to recover from a stroke.- learning how to walk again.
This card is entered in the challenges below, but also in the Splitcoaststampers Falliday challenge - HBrown asked us to make examples using fall colors with no white or vanilla.  The leaves are die cuts.
