Just Us Girls #411 - Color Week

Maria is our host for the color challenge this week at Just Us Girls and she has chosen
Rather "Fall-ish" looking to me and although that's where my head went first it took a U-turn and I ended up with this:


I cut the Concord and 9th leaves from patterned papers in the challenge colors although the patterns are so subtle that they are hardly noticeable. Sorry about the blurriness of the photo.  I think it's the shadows made from layering the pp on colored cuts to make them more stable.  

It took a while to decide how to present my leaves. I had them straight up and down but then how would I do the sentiment, and on what?  I angled them and liked that arrangement better.  I remembered a die cut from Avery Elle that I knew would fit in the corner and then stretched the rules a little and cut it from cork.  You can use neutrals with your design and I figured my cork was a neutral.  The sentiment is from My Craft Spot (closed). 

What do you think of when you see these colors?  Let's see you translate that image into a card for the gallery.
