The background paper is from the DCWV Amber Autumn stack. I cut 10 leaves from Straight from the Nest out of white cardstock. Then I used Distress Inks in Dried Marigold, Fired Brick, Shabby Shutters and Vintage Photo to color them. I didn't like the matte finish so I used my VersaMark and embossed them with clear powder. I cut a circle from George with the center cut out to use as a base for the leaves. Three colors of twine and a scrap of ribbon make the bow on top.

Happy fall, everyone! Yesterday was the most beautiful day here in mid-Michigan. I would love it to be that way year round temperature-wise. But I know that we need the colder weather for the leaves to change color and it's such a beautiful sight that I wouldn't want to miss it. Speaking of colorful leaves, I made this card for a challenge at My Craft Spot (fall leaves) but it also fits with the challenge at Cooking with Cricut (#52 The Colors of Autumn.)
