Fall Leaves

It's starting to feel like fall more and more everyday. It is my favorite time of the year. This beautiful leaf and acorn is part of a stamp from Clear Dollar Stamps and it is called "Leaf Hellos". I stamped right on the colored paper and then used gold embossing powder. I was going for a vintage look for The Pink Elephant challenge this week. The sketch came from Sunday Sketch and Stamp Challenge. These are the other challenges I am entering this card into:


Craft Your Passion - F=Fall
Critter Sketch - picture challenge - fall leaves
Crafty Pad - Autumn
Hand Stamped Sentiments - Fall
Party Time Challenge - Ribbon, trim, and fibers
Tuesday Throwdown - Pearls (Viva Pearl Pen - Dark Brown)
Kenny K Challenge - Pins and pearls

Thanks so much for stopping by and have a wonderful week!
