AUTUMN LEAVES

Hi peeps - don't you just love the Autumnal colours - such a shame those golden leaves have to fall from the trees isn't it. 
My card today is for the Autumn Challenge at Less is More.
Sorry about the blue patch on my white card - how does that happen when the whole card is facing the same light source when photographed - does anyone know please?!


The leaves are Cuttlebug dies, inked with lots of Vintage Photo, Spiced Marmalade and a little Fired Brick DI then spritzed with Perfect Pearls Heirloom Gold. The veins were created with an embossing tool.
I curved the leaves to give dimension, then attached with silicone glue.
Sentiment from Paper Artsy, inked with Archival Coffee, mixed with a little Spiced Marmalade on the two bottom lines.
Update - November 2nd - My card has been Showcased at Less Is More - thank you Chrissie and Mandi!
I would also like to enter my card into the Opus Gluei  Challenge - Leaves and/or Halloween!

Have a great week ~
Hugs

Absolutely beautiful card, very classy as for the sentiment, I can't decide if I am in the Autumn or the Winter of my life, goodness knows where the Spring and Summer went.
No help on the photo's, it's a male thing so expect anything.
Hope you had a good weekend.

I love those leaves, Sylvia, they look so real. I'll have to look out for the dies!!!
It's such a beautiful card and very right for the colours outside, although maybe not today as it's so dark and dismal.
Thinking about you this week, will be in touch.

Rosemary said...

What a spectacular clean and simple card. I agree, why don't the leaves stay so we have SOME color throughout the rest of the cold weather! LOL, oh well, I guess it makes us appreciate springtime so much more.

Your leaves are gorgeous, I love the rich colors and the extra touches of the veins and shimmer. They really make an impact. Very cool Thank you so much for sharing your creativity and this wonderful card with us at Opus Gluei!

(p.s., I have the same frustration with photography as well - LOL, it is a mystery.)
