Color Throwdown #759, Tic Tac Toe #225 and The Male Room #178

I started with the colors of Color Throwdown, used leaves for The Male Room and combined the card works for Tic Tac Toe diagonally from left to right. 

The leaves from HoneyBee's Fall Foliage were inked with Distress Inks in Crackling Campfire, Lumberjack Plaid and Aged Mahogany.  The little pod was done with Aged Mahogany and the top layer cut from gold.  After arranging them on Altenew's Spicy Yogurt paper, I gold heat embossed the sentiment from Hero Arts and inked the strip with Crackling Campfire.  

I love the deep rich color.  With the cold nights we have had lately we may soon be seeing our leaves turn this color.  The changing colors are beautiful but I'm not quite ready for it to happen yet. It means winter is not far behind.
