Thank you for your kindness - Creative with Stamps #18

Friday September 1, 2017
It's time for another month long challenge at
our theme for this month is LEAVES
 With fall right around the corner.. Summer is pretty much over and I must say I love summer but Fall is another season with the changing of the leaves, cooler temps.  If it we could only have spring, summer and fall.. I'd be happy. I am not a winter person.. I guess we'll see how it is this winter with it being my first since retiring.. I know I have sure enjoyed the other seasons.
I had fun creating this card. I used mostly Stampin Up leaves.. I did add the little three leaf teal leaves by Simon Says. I added the sentiment on vellum and heat embossed with antique gold  and did the scallop die for the border all three by Simon Says.. I have a close up below showing it better. I did all of the colors with Ranger inks. I added some Nuvo drops. I used a large dot embossing folder on SU Elegant eggplant. Please stop by the CWS blog and see some inspiration by the DT.
