Give Thanks

Today begins another challenge on The House That Stamps Built blog.  Our theme this week is: Falling for Fall--Autumn.  Here is my card:
The colors I used aren't super Fall-ish (except for the green and brown), but these are some gorgeous fall papers from an Authentique pad I have.  I think it is called "Grateful" but not sure.  Anyway, the little "dots" on the upper piece of paper are actually acorns.  They're so cute in real life.  Because of the tones of the papers, I decided to stamp my leaf in brown, but I stamped off on a piece of scrap paper first to get a muted image.  I love Fall and all the images/colors that go along with it, so I can't wait to see what you create for our challenge.

Lovely card Heather. I love the simplicity of the leaf with the detailing dotty and stripey papers. The embellishments and 'Give thanks' sentiment work so well with it. Thanks for entering Crafting Musketeers Challenge :) xx
