The Colors of Fall

I love all the colors of the seasons, but Fall has to be my very favorite.  We don't see very much Fall type temperatures around here - but maybe we will this year. 

This cute little image can be found at From the Heart Stamps for their monthly progressive challenge.  I added some patterned papers and a leaf die from Impression Obsession that was sponged in distress inks.  Also did a little sponging around the image after coloring it with Copics.

I'd also like to enter this as my second entry in the NBUS challenge that Darnell is having.


Thanks for stopping by........and have a great weekend!
Lynn

Autumn colors are my very favorite also. Believe it or not there is a tree on the next street over from ours that has already turned a bright orange. With all this heat we've had I didn't think they would turn this early. This card is so very nice and I love the sponging around the darling image. The sentiment is so true and your paper choices are ideal. Enjoy the day.

You know, fall is my least favourite time of the year but I love the bold oranges, browns and reds associated with it.
This is a great card Lynn and I love the leaf and the colours you made it. Great colouring too... fabulous job on her hair.

Yay for you on getting some things into the NBUS. This one's a cutie. Love the autumn colors on this little sweetie, and the stripe background paper is just PER-fect to dress her all ready for the season.You know I love the stitched mat, and the colors on the embellie leaf look just like what we see round our area. Also like the pattern combination you have on the dp. Another great NBUS entry. Well done you. TFS & Hugs

Yes, I love fall too, but I used to love it more than I do now. lol I just know that winter is going to soon follow and I hate the long winters anymore.
