Autumn Trees and Falling Leaves

I don't usually combine challenges, but since several are along the theme of Autumn, I hope you will indulge me! Over at Make My Monday, the theme continues to be Autumn, and this week we are to make a project with AutumnTrees! At Bloggers Challenge, the theme is Falling For You and can be interpreted as we see fit. I also came across a new to me challenge called Stamptacular Sunday Challenge and their theme, #133, is called "So Distressing! " And so, with these challenges in mind, I created my autumnal card with an Orange card base. The trees by Rubber Stampede were stamped in Rich Cocoa Memento Ink on Glossy Paper. I distressed the tree image with Distress Inks in Antique Linen, Spiced Marmalade, Wild Honey and Brushed Concord. The sentiment, also stamped in Rich Cocoa is by Hero Arts. Embellishments include leaf buttons, Scrappers' Floss, ribbon, and Liquid Pearls in Copper. I just love this time of year! Hope everyone has a great week. Best, Yvonne
