the colors of autumn

Autumn is filled with rich reds, oranges, yellows sprinkled in between the greens and browns.  It’s a beautiful time of the year – even down here in Florida where a few of the trees  have leaves that turn colors!

This card was created for today’s clean and simple challenge at SCS which called for using fall colors.

I stamped the leaf and sentiment onto vanilla cardstock.  The leaf was colored with daffodil, pumpkin, tangerine and cherry markers.  The sentiment and lined frame was done in cocoa.  I love this particular leaf set from SU, called Autumn  Leaf Prints.  It’s retired now, but I don’t think they have made a leaf set as nice since this one.   The leaf was also stamped in the background with cherry ink.  The sentiment is from TPC Studio.

The paper is cherry, espresso and kraft – and this combination goes so well together.  The richness of the cherry against the dark espressor reminds me of chocolate covered cherries!

Thanks for stopping by today!
