Cards in Envy Challenge: Autumn Leaves

Happy Monday!  It’s time for another Cards in Envy challenge using the theme of  Autumn Leaves.  I would love your support in this challenge by entering a card.  You have a full two weeks for this challenge which runs through October 19th (a day before my birthday, shhhhh).  As I said a few days ago, the fall leaves are out in their full glory here in Upstate New York and the views are just breathtaking so it wasn’t hard for me to be inspired for a Autumn Leaves challenge.  The Cards in Envy challenge asks that your cards fit into a standard A2 envelope for ease of mailing, but that doesn’t mean they have to be one layer or clean and simple as you can see from my card.  I thought for this challenge I would offer an Autumn Leaves card with a Halloween focus.  My inspiration card uses a My Favorite Things Pure Innocent stamp called “Pretty Pumpkins” that I watercolored using distress markers.  The paper is from DCWV “Spooky Time” 6 x 6 pad and the tree with leaves die is from Paper Smooches, which I edged with gathered twigs distress inks.  The stitched circle die is from My Favorite Things and I created the “ground” in the circle with the Simon Says Stamp curved edge die.   Hope you like it and enter a card with us at Cards in Envy!
