A Fallen Leaf

Hi and welcome to my blog! I am really wanting Fall to hurry and get here! It has been in the 90's here most of the week! I love Fall with all its colors and smells. I love the beautiful colors of the leaves on the trees especially. I guess this comes from growing up on the prairie in Texas and not seeing tree leaves turn colors. My mother recalled that when I was around 5 years old we traveled somewhere in the Fall where the leaves were turning colors. I yelled out - "look, the trees are blooming!" So, I have made a card using this neat tree from Just For Fun Stamps. I used a background I made awhile back where I patted Distress inks on my mat, spritzed the inks with water and smooshed glossy card stock through the inks. I used my clear Wink of Stella pen over the paper leaves.

    Thanks so much for stopping by. I hope you have wonderful and blessed day!

Very pretty card, April! I love the distress ink background, it blends together for just the right amount of brown between the purple and orange. It looks great with that pretty tree! Pretty saying too.
