It's beginning to feel like fall....

Well, not actually. It's still in the upper 90's here in Central Texas but the calendar says it should start feeling like fall, Starbucks has released their fab fall beverages (pumpkin spice latte Yum!) and with the horrible drought the grass is brown and the leaves are falling off the trees. This is as close as I'll be getting to fall this year. Since my autumns in Texas are anything but the wonderful pumpkin patch scouring-apple picking-leaf pile jumping-scraf wearing days of my dreams, I chose to convey all the wonders of autumn in a card.

I am very much in love with the tree for all reasons stamp by Deadbeat Designs. The tree on it's own has so many possibilities but when you pair it with the additions that Mark has created (and a few found additions in my stamp stash) you can truely create a card for all reasons.

For the card I am sharing today I stamped the bare tree and then used the leaves stamp by Deadbeat Designs in four different colors to create my multi-colored leaves and the fallend leaves on the ground. To round out the warm golden feeling I used some metallic watercolors to fill in around the leaves.
