Gratitude - Sunny Challenges & Creations SC 085/13

No, the leaves haven't turned colour here yet, but I expect that by the middle of the month a subtle change in colour will occur.  I hate for summer to come to an end, but I do like the fall (except for what comes after).  Considering that its the middle of the summer, the temperatures sure have been cool.  I just heard on the radio that it willl be 9 degrees C tonight!

For the challenge with Sunny Challenges & Creations here I thought I would make an Autumn card.






 

Techniques:
The leaf was stamped using the 2 stamping method and the edges then sponged with Soft Suede ink after it was cut out.
The circles were cut using the Circles framelits.  The Very Vanilla circle was stamped with the En Francais stamp set.
The doily I dyed using Soft Suede reinker in a bit of water.  I just love the colour it turned out.

Stamps: Gently falling, En Francais, Harvest of Thanks
Inks: Summer Starfruit, Tangerine Tango, Soft Suede, Soft Suede reinker, Chocolate chip
Papers: Chocolate chip, Very Vanilla, Sweater Weather DSP, Soft Suede, Whisper White
Accessories: Doily, Circles framelits, 1/2" Linen ribbon, Bitty Banners framelits, dimensionals

This is a stunning creation Maria! I love how you have used the En Francais background stamp and how you died the doiley to. The single leaf is gorgeous and the ribbon trim sets it off completely! Thank you so much for joining us this week at Sunny Challenges and Creations
