Fall Elegance

I have been having so much fun making Christmas Cards lately that I thought I wanted to try a fall card for a change of pace. I found some challenges I thought I would join...Just Add Ink #142 sketch challenge, Color me beautiful Challenge #10, and SU only Challenge #57-Autumn Elegance. I love making the real looking leaves so I thought I would give them a try once again.
 
I started with River Rock and Sahara Sand as the base for each of the leaves. I then added all five other colors to end up with the colors on the leaves. I added some homemade shimmer mist and Log Cabin Smooch Spritz to the leaves as well. I figured any elegant card needed a little bling so I added the Champagne Glimmer Paper. The piece of hardware I used was originally silver but I sprayed it with the Log Cabin Smooch Spritz to color it. I had fun with all the different textures on this card as well.
Thanks for stopping by!
Aimee
