An Autumn Leaf

With cooler "sweatshirt" weather this week, soon our trees will begin showing their beautiful autumn colors.  In anticipation, this card uses Color My Heart (Color Dare #110of Barn Red, Sunset, and Honey and mashes them with The Friday Mashup (FM177) of using 'leaves' and a sketch. The beautiful leaf stamp is from Harvest Happiness, and it is paired with a sentiment from the new Rainy Day stamp set.  Using the Art Philosophy cartridge, a circle was cut using tan Glitter Paper and a larger scalloped circle was cut using Barn Red from Paper Fundamentals




All papers and stamps are from Close To My Heart (CTMH).

  6. Perfect take on the Mashup this week, Sheila. The CAS design with the sentiment was a great idea. The glimmer was a good choice for the leaf to set on, too. Thanks for sharing with the Friday Mashup this week:)
