Falling Leaves Are Soon To Come

Our ninety degree temperatures have me wishing for fall weather.  Guess that is why I was thinking fall when I made this card for Teddy Stampers' sketch challenge and Just for Fun's Challenge.
I forget where I purchased this cute bear playing in the leaves last spring but have been waiting til fall to use. I started with a base card of off white and a mat of olive green . I dry embossed a strip of yellow cs and wrapped with red and green twine. After stamping my bear, I colored the image with Copics colors red, olive,yellow and brown and matted him on a circle of red. Sponged color on for grass and sky. Stamped some leaves on yellow cs and cut out as embellies.  Finished with some paper piercing and a sentiment in red.
