Autumn Leaves

Well, it is feeling like fall here, finally. Such nice cool weather. I was scrambling a little this morning to find warmer clothes for the kids. But think I got things sorted out now. I love to open the windows and enjoy the cool air!

I used the Inspired Crafters (ICC9) sketch for this challenge. It was such a fun and easy sketch to use. I did have to move my sentiment down a bit, it didn't fit on the larger panel after my leaves went on. This was a fun change for me to do some two step stamping. It's been a while since I did that. The gold embossed leaf veins look even better in real life. Now I'm off to make five more of these for a Papertreyink card swap I'm participating in.

Thanks for stopping by today. Hope you are getting a bit of fall weather wherever you are, too.

Stamps: PTI Leaf Prints and Mailbox Greetings
