Fall Anniversary

 
Hello!  Soon the trees will be turning colors  and the leaves will be falling and then one of my favorite (not) activities  of raking leaves will begin.  My husband and I spend a lot of time raking and cleaning up the colored leaves so I thought this would be an appropriate card for our October anniversary.....to remind him of all those leaves and fun.  I used GKD stamps from The Northwoods set that I stamped in Memento Rich Cocoa ink on Ivory CS and colored the leaves on the trees and ground with Copic and Memento Markers. The image was cut framed with Fresh Asparagus CS, both cut with  Spellbinder dies. Added this to an embossed layer (EF Forest Branches) of Honey Mustard CS and then to card base of Dark Chocolate.
All papers are GKD. The plaid ribbon added was from my stash.
 
Challenges:
Stamp TV: STVAW6  Release Party Challenge to use Autumn Colors
Time Out Challenges: Take Time Out to Make Your Mark.  Use Copics and Memento Markers.
Simon Wednesday Challenge: Simon says Make It Colorful. Used fall colors.
 
Have a great day! I love reading your comments. Theresa
