Fall Is In the Air

I love the feel of fall and the colors of fall leaves. This week Joan's Gardens has a fall color challenge - Include Leaves on your card , Fall colors, Tree and/or bird , and use a product sold at Joan's Gardens. I made the background paper using a sheet of clear vellum paper and drops of SU reinkers Real Red, Old Olive, More Mustard, and Ruby Red squirted on a crafting mat.  I laid the paper on the mat and created this very fall colored paper. After drying my vellum paper, I attached it to cardstock and embossed with Cuttlebug EF Birds and Swirls. I glued this to a base card of Pumpkin. Since I had out the reinkers, I then added ink to some paper towels to create a multi color pad of the fall colors. Using an old PSX Maple leaf stamp I stamped leaves on Orange cardstock and fussy cut and placed with pop up dots on my card. The sentiment from GKD was stamped with Memento Espresso Truffle ink on the orange cardstock and trimmed with a Spellbinders tag die. Added a bit of grosgrain ribbon. Also added a bird of Copper Metallic cardstock punched with a Marianne die.
Used Marianne Die, Vellum for Grafix pad, Memento Ink,and E6000 Spray Adhesive all available at Joan's Gardens.
Other Challenges:
