Celebrate Fall Colors

Today feels very fall like with temps in the 50's this morning.. Summer has gone by so quickly and winter is not far away so it is time to enjoy the beauty of fall .  I  used these fall stamps from Mark's Finest Papers to create a card for the coming season. Stamped the large mum and colored with copics and sponged with yellow after cutting with a die. Stamped the pot of mums and colored in the same way but cut out to mount on the brown mat embossed with Cuttlebug. Also embossed the red mat that I placed under the larger mum. Assembled the card adding 5 leaves and sentiment to complete. Followed the sketch shown on the right.
