For today I am submitting this card to Addicted to CAS, Pals Paper Arts and Simon Says Stamp Wednesday Challenge. Since fall is in the air and the leaves are starting to change I thought it would be perfect time to celebrate with a CAS Autumn card.. Here you go! Enjoy!

The color prompt from Pals Paper Arts was so beautiful. This stamp (SU not sure of the name) reminded me of gently falling leaves, perfect fit for Addicted to CAS challenge. As I didn't have the exact colors for the PPA challenge I tried to get close. I stamped the leaves using Tangelo Twist but it needed a bit more pink to match PPA. So I added some Dried Marigold Distress ink and blended it with an aqua pen.

I also used Pool Party to blend into the leaves. Because the Tangelo Twist is more of a dark coral the addition of the of the Dried Marigold was just the ticket to get close to the . I added the yellow using the darker Daffodil Delight alcohol marker to coordinate with Crushed Curry.
Addicted to CAS is what prompted me to try my hand (once again) at a CAS card. All the white space I think allows the color of the leaves to really shine. The Pool Party border was done by coloring the ink from the pad to the paper, then die cut again allowing some leaves to see some blue. The twine was added for some texture.
That is all for me I hope this post finds you well and I want to say a big
