Falling Leaves

Deedee's Digis September challenge has begun, and if you played along with us last month, you've already earned this cute stamp set called "Leaf Your Cares Behind." If you didn't join us last month, you can still get this for a reduced price during the month of September. All the details are here.

I used the pre-colored image but decided to add a little extra coloring of my own. I painted her toenails with a Spica orange glitter pen just because I could :) All of the falling leaves were done with an EK border punch and tiny snippets of cardstock in Autumn colors. The background was done with 3 panels of Autumn paper and cardstock. The one on the left is actually the cover of an Autumn paper pad, while the orange panel was embossed with a Darice Autumn leaves ef, and the one on the right was from a Tim Coffey Autumn paper pad.


We hope you can find time to play along with us and get some Autumn cards made at the same time!

Thanks for stopping by and make it a great day!

What a sweet card with that fall patchwork in the background. Somehow I don't usually associate fall and elephants! See, that's you expanding my universe!!!
