Shades of Autumn

Fall has definitely come to Iowa.  Our daytime temperatures have been in the 60s and our nighttime temperatures have been in the 40s.  There is definitely a chill in the air and hints of even cooler weather yet to come.  It won't be long now and the leaves will really start to burst with color.  I'm hoping we have a lot of color this year.

Here is the card I made for the Freshly Made Sketches Challenge.  I couldn't get the lighting just right and you can't see the shimmer mist well but it added just a wee bit of gold to the design.


Stamp Set:  For All Things; Inks:  Crumb Cake, Early Espresso; Cardstock:  Adventure Bound Designer Series Paper Stack (retired), Crumb Cake, Delightful Dijon, Smoky Slate, Very Vanilla; Accessories & Tools:  Assorted Leaves Dies (Darice), Crimper, Paper Snips, Stampin' Trimmer, Big Shot Die-Cutting Machine, SNAIL Permanent Adhesive, Dimensionals, Gold Pearl Mist (Splash of Color).  All Stampin' Up!® product unless otherwise noted.

The sketch I used is from Freshly Made Sketches.

The color inspiration came from Design Seeds.

    1. Thanks, Linda. Our best time for the changing color here in Iowa is throughout the month of October. In another week or so they fall colors will be in full bloom.
