Falling Leaves...

Fall is my most FAVORITE time of year! It never lasts long enough! There is something about wearing jeans and a sweatshirt that feels so good to me! I decided to join in on the Dynamic Duos #19 Challenge and the Less is More Challenge this week. The Less is More challenge is the one layer card with the focus being on LEAVES...
This was such a fun but simple card to make. I first used the background stamp EnFrancis with Crumb Cake ink. Then I used the Gently Falling stamp set and embossed the solid leaves in clear. I then use the sponge daubers and added the Cajun Craze and Always Artichoke around the embossed images. Then I used the outline of the leaves and embossed in gold. It is so hard for me not to add some ribbon to a card so I thought this would be a simple little touch. I stamped the sentiment on the inside. What I love about this card is the simplicity and the fact that it can be used for many occasions.
Have a great day!!
