Autumn Splendor

Another fall card.  I had to drive to Lindsay today for a meeting, and along the highway I was noticing that the leaves in a number of trees were starting to change to their autumn colours.  This stamp set stayed in my mind the whole trip.  Does that ever happen to you?
This card uses the sketch challenge from Technostamper - sketch #137.
Stamp: Autumn Splendor Pg. 119, Teeny Tiny Wishes Pg. 157
After embossing the leaf images with gold embossing powder, I used the reinker drop technique to colour the leaves.  The images were then cut out and placed on the card with stampin dimensionals
Colours: Reinkers:  More mustard, Old Olive and Chocolate Chip - for the leaves.  Basic Black for the sentiment
Paper: Old Olive for the base card, Autumn Spice designer paper Pg. 13 of the mini catalogue, water colour paper, Early Expresso, Cajun Craze
Accessories: 1/8" taffeta ribbon (Early Expresso), Top Note die and Big Shot, Stampin Dimensionals, Small glue dots, word window punch

So pretty, I love the colors of fall--I prefer Summer weather though! What a fabulous card, love that new set and the way you did your ribbon. Thanks so much for playing along.
