Falling Leaves

Hello everyone! (A second post for the day.) This post is for a challenge over at Simon Says Stamp and Show, where the theme this week is Leaves.  I worked with three different stamps to create my card.  The leaf panel in the background started as white card stock. It was sprayed with Dylusions Spray Inks in red, yellow and orange inks.  The falling leaves stamp by Northwood Rubber Company was stamped over the prepared panel, trimmed and mounted to the card base.  The sentiment by The Stamp Pad Company was inked with Persimmon Distress Ink and distressed with Vintage Photo and Persimmon Distress Inks.  The young lady, one of my all time favorites, by Rubber Stampede, seemed to fit well with the sentiment.  She is stamped with Vintage Photo Distress Ink and mounted to brown and copper metallic paper and layered over a distressed doily on the card base.  Embellishments include bronze lace, photo corners, copper liquid pearls, a vintage button, burlap string from the Funkie Junkie Boutique and paper leaves.  Thanks for stopping by.  I'm also submitting my card to Sunday Share at the Frillie and Funkie Blog.Your comments and visits continue to encourage me.  Best wishes, Yvonne

This is really spooky Yvonne as I have the same stamp sitting awaiting inking for a creation I'm making too.
Just love what you did with the gorgeous dreamy image and her little leafy frame looks stunning.
Great sentiment too.
Hugs, Fliss xx
