Falling Leaves

Here's My Card for several challenges.  This will be my last post for a little while as we are heading off on holiday later this week and won't be home until the end of October.  I guess I'll have withdrawal again - a whole month without stamping!  I needed a birthday card and thought I'd combine three challenges to do it.  First, the sketch is  Mojo Monday #260, then the colours came from Colour Q Challenge 156  and last the inspiration came from The Friday Mashup #78 - Let's Get Twiney!

So here is the "Mashup" Challenge:
  1. Make a "Fall Leaves" themed project.
  2. Or Make a project with "Twine".
  3. Or "Mash it Up" and create a "Fall Leaves Themed project using Twine". 

I decided to go with the "Mashup" ; I thought the colours would be perfect for fall leaves. I don't have any of the leaf stamps or dies that seem to be so popular so I went to an old favourite set "Lovely as a Tree".  I stamped the tree in Soft Suede and then used markers to colour the fall leaves. I substituted Cajun Craze for Dusty Durango as I did not have any of that retired colour; and I did not have a button in that colour so I made one using the Buttons #5 Sizzlet and Crystal Effects.  Other details:
Cardstock: Whisper White, Soft Suede, Cajun Craze
DSP: Comfort Cafe
Other: Woodgrain Embossing Folder, Brights Buttons in Pumpkin Pie and Rich Razzleberry, Early Espresso Baker's Twine.

Happy Thanksgiving!!
Thanks for visiting.
