Just Us Girls #651 - Photo Week

Nancy is hosting the Photo Week challenge at Just Us Girls this week and she has chosen an appropriate photo for this time of year.

The one thing I love about living in the Midwest is the changing seasons and none is more beautiful than Fall.

The leaves were cut from watercolor paper using my two sizes of Lawn Fawn Stitched Leaves.  They were colored with a variety of Distress Inks and when dry arranged on Spicy Yogurt cardstock from Altenew.  A simple foiled sentiment from Altenew was the finishing touch. 

I'm guessing it will be a colorful gallery this week.  Let's start by seeing what the Design Team and our guest Julie Beech have made using the photo as inspiration.   Then it's up to you to make a card and link it up.  Who knows.  You may have a chance to be a future guest. 

Edited to Add: Since my card qualifies for the Double D challenge - Things that Fall - I will be sending my card to their galllery.
