 Hi all today I am sharing a card I made for the Leaves challenge over at Double D Challenge blog .

They have an inspiration board for you to get inspiration for your card and I went with the upper left panel.

I had this background in my stash that I didn't end up using on another card, I stamped the background with versamark ink and then add some  pearl ex to it.  The leaves were done using Mega flakes onto leaf dies.

  • Northwoods Rubber stamp, stamped with Versamark ink and then added Pearl Ex
  • Spellbinders - Fall Foliage dies adding Mega Flakes of Autumn Blaze to them
  • Tim Holtz - Metallic Sticker book sentiment

Oh I love this time of year, can't wait to see the pretty fall leaves on the trees :) There is one tree done the road that is starting to change.

Thanks so much for taking the time to stop by today,
