Autumn's Leaves

Happy Friday morning! I would say it is a good day but I have allergies soooooooo bad. It is that time of year for me...April and September. Ugh! You know, the sore throat and all that goes with it. Never mind me..let's just get on with my card.

I wanted to case a card today for the newly crowned Queen for the Day on Splitcoaststampers. It is none other than Dawn aka dawnmercedes. Here is her card. I stayed pretty true to her sketch and changed the dp and images

I am using a Mark's Finest Papers set called Autumn Glory and what a great set it is for the Fall season. I stamped directly onto my designer paper and a couple leaves at the bottom, which I sponged with a bit of green.

I think we need to do a house swap Brenda .... loads of rain and cool weather here this weekend so you'd have no bother with your allergies!
Beautiful card, that's such a pretty leaf stamp and great touch to add just a hint of colour!

Bonnie said...

I love this Fall card in the greens! After all, that's what we are seeing with just a hint of red in the Dogwoods. That piece of vellum behind the sentiment is genius!

Davi said...

Brenda how wonderful this one is! I love the little touch of green in the pretty leaves. The vellum makes a very pretty backing to the sentiment!

Sigh. I love this. THe softly shaded leaves at the bottom, the green paper, the sheer vellum focal point...I wouldn't change a thing!
