MMSC#13 Falling Leaves

I am thinking of a Barbara Streisand song called "New York State of Mind". I am in a "Fall State of Mind". It all started with the plans to do the Pumpkin Sugar Quilt. I was picking my fabrics out for my quilt from my stash and realizing just how much I love fall colors. So being in a "Fall State of Mine" I just had to make this card for this weeks Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge over at Priscilla's Blog. Don't forget to head on over and sign up for all the amazing prizes being offered there. You have until August 14 to sign up for the Blog Candy posted in my sidebar.

This is a Son Light Impressions stamp and has been stamped three times and layered. The leaves were from "A Whale of a Punch". I drew in the veins and distressed the edges and glittered them up. The background squares are from Cuddlebug and are in a set of four called "Vintage". The background paper is from this years Debbie Mumm Holiday Harvest Stack. I used my scalloped and plain oval nesties and embroidered the card in copper.

Thanks for stopping by today. Hope you have a great weekend.

Wooooo, Carol ,this one has such great autumn flavor! That's one of my favorite seasons :) You are an awesome card maker, dearie! Thank you for your staunch support for our sketch. I think that cuttlebug die was just the right one to use. I have it too, but I just wasn't thinking to use it. I think mine would have come out so much better if I did. hehe. xox ~Jeni & MMSC DT

Carol--how lovely!!!!!!!!! There isn't a thing on this card that I would change or do differently! I too love fall colors, and do a lot of leaves this time of year. I never would have thought of using glitter on the leaves either. TTYL Patty
