Fall Is In the Air

It's time for another What If? Wednesday Challenge from The House That Stamps Built.  This week we have a fabulous color challenge for you:
Now, these colors would be perfect for summery cards as they are definitely "hot" colors.  But when I see them, I think Fall!  I'm not trying to rush it, by any means, but I do love Fall, and the colors, and the decor, and . . .  So, here's my card:
I used the "Maple Leaf Silhouette" stamp from Repeat Impressions and used the "rock n' roll" technique.  It's been a looooong time since I've done that, and I really like the look it gave to the leaf.  Now, head on over to The House Blog and see what the rest of the DT has created.  Don't forget I have a 10% off your entire RI order coupon code over there in my left sidebar.  I can't wait to see what you do with this challenge.

Another great focus on the sentiment card. Love the colors and the leaf (and especially the colors in the leaf). I am so ready for Fall. Thanks for joining us in the DRS Designs Sentiment Challenge. Hugz

Heather, I like everything about your card! From the way you stamped the leaf, to the rope and buttons - both of which give it a rustic fall feel. Thanks for joining in the fun at YNS and sharing your take on challenge #21!

I agree Heather these feel more like fall colors to me than summer. Love your beautiful card with the leaf as the focal point. Thanks so much for joining us at Kraftin' Kimmie challenges!
