Falling Leaves

Hello Everyone,

Update: still hoarse and throat feels like I'm breathing out fire. Anyhoo, this too shall pass. 

Today I will be entering Addicted to CAS, Retro Rubber Challenge, Cupcake Inspirations and Allsorts Challenge Blog. I do enjoy Autumn but here in Michigan, it looks like it is about over. Ho-Hum but I can still look at the bright side. I can still make a card! Here is my design for today, enjoy!
This one layer card was created using watercolor paper measuring 4x6.
I thought using a taller card would enhance vertical space.
I really like the way the leaves are moving through the card.
Every leaf is going their own way.
Detail showing the different color within the leaves.
I used multiple shades of red, purple, and orange ZIG markers and blended 
them together using yellow. The result is rich and bold leaves. 
Challenges Entered:
Addicted to CAS: Week #123- Leaves
Cupcake Inspirations: CIC431- Fall
Allsorts Challenges: Week 441 - Colours of Autumn

Well, that should do it for me!! Thank you so much for stopping by and do appreciate you taking time out of your busy day to spend time with me. We will see you soon. Take care and happy stamping.

All the best,

Yes, Fall is over in Michigan. We got a skiff of snow yesterday. :( I love that leaf stamp, Shawna, with the way they curl. Your color blending of Zigs really does give them a rich color. Take care of your throat. Maybe some hot tea with honey and vinegar will do the trick. Thanks for sharing your card with us at Addicted to CAS.

Shawna, so sorry to hear you're sick! I hope you are all better before the holidays. Anyhoo... your card is gorgeous! I love everything about it!! If you hadn't have mentioned that this was a one layer card, I wouldn't have noticed because you brought so much attention to those brilliantly colored leaves. Thank you for playing with us at Retro Rubber and hope you will join us again soon!
