Fall Card

My first fall card for this year.  As you may know, autumn started very early in The Netherlands this year in fact, we kinda "skipped" summer!  I do not want to give a wrong impression that it's always like this over here which is not true.  We had a very early summer this year which was in April/ May had very good summer during the last few years.

First, I distressed the white cardstock in vintage photo and marmalade and stamped the background with HA manuscript lightly.  Then I used the HA Maple Leaf which is stamped in different colours randomly.  I stamped the maple leaf 3 times in 3 different colours and distressed the edges with the matching colours to highlight the the leaves. 

The sentiment is computer printed and I love it! 

I'm entering this card into the following challenges : Hero Arts, Hand Stamped Sentiments, Stempel Studio

Hello Lai-Yoke
You have captured the essence of Autumn perfectly in this card, firstly with your colour choices and secondly using the leaves as the main image. It is a beautiful card.
