Fall Leaves

Good evening! It has been a long day for me. Are you getting lots of rain? We are here in Middle Tennessee, it has rained off and on for the past three days. I did notice on my way home today that I am starting to see the beginnings of some color changes on the trees. I love the colors that fall brings each year. I know it probably sounds a little strange, but there are several trees in the area that are my favorites, they are large older trees and are always so beautiful as they change each year. My card tonight uses a set from Inkadinkado. I had some trouble capturing the colors of this picture for some reason. The main leaf was embossed with cooper embossing powder and the leaf border was stamped with Brilliance Rich Cocoa ink. The rhinestones in the corner are some that I got from the dollar area at Jo-Ann's and the ribbon is from Michael's. Stay dry!

Yes, it has been raining and quite cool (down to 50° at night) here in western Maryland. And we have a couple of smaller trees that are turning yellow. And I too have a favorite tree in the fall. It's along the road I drive to go to work. It's a maple and turns the most gorgeous, vibrant violet red each fall. I always say I want to photograph it but I could never capture it as any more than a plain old red tree.

Your card really evokes the fall feel. I like the sweep of leaves along the bottom right and the copper embossing. Very nice.
