iSpy French Foliage

When I saw the colors at Pals Paper Arts this week, I thought uh oh!  I don't do Halloween and they screamed Halloween to me.  So I took a few liberties with nature and used the colors for an Autumn card.  I thought the colors would look good on a color block card and the iSpy sketch was just perfect!

There's a lot of sponging on this card to try and add some depth of color.  The French Foliage set is perfect for layering of stamped images and I used all but one of the images in the set.  I had plans for the postmark image but it didn't pan out, otherwise that would have been used as well.

Thanks for looking.
