Autumn in Spring

Here in the Southern Hemisphere it's the middle of spring, but recent weather would make one think we're in Autumn again!  Here's a card I made for several challenges - the color challenge at Create with Connie & Mary; the Elegant Autumn challenge at SUO Challenges; and the Paper Players Challenge to give thanks.


Jen Timko's gorgeous DT card on the SUO Challenges blog inspired me to use French Foliage for my card.  I used Crumb Cake for my card base and stamped layer and Midnight Muse between the two.  I stamped the script and splatter images onto both the card base and stamped layer on the left hand sides.  Using my stamp-a-majig I stamped the leaf image in Cajun Craze alternated with More Mustard.  For the cut out leaves, I stamped in More Mustard then edged with my Cajun Craze marker.  The sentiment was stamped in Midnight Muse.



Thanks for looking.

Products used (all Stampin' Up!):

Stamps:  French Foliage; Made for You
Cardstock:  Crumb Cake; Midnight Muse
Ink:  Cajun Craze; More Mustard; Midnight Muse; Crumb Cake
Accessories:  Midnight Muse ribbon; Cajun Craze marker

Cheers
Karren

What a fun fall card! I love they way you positioned the leaves down the side of the card and then have the words and splotches down the other side. Great masculine card! The Crumb Cake really makes the colors pop. Thanks for playing the Create with Connie & Mary challenge this week!
