Welcome Fall

I love the change of seasons, especially fall---though I could jump straight to spring and skip winter all together :)  But what I love most about fall is the change of leaves.  I pulled out an old stamp set for this one.  The Lovely As A Tree set has been in the catalog ever since I joined Su and that was almost 10 years ago!!!!!  It's my go to stamp set for masculine cards and I've been known to make quite a few Christmas cards with this set.  You'll probably see a few later this year too!  I saw this card on pintrest, here's the link to the creator.  I loved the look of it and I HAD to recreate it.  I JUST LOVE THIS CARD!!!!!  I love the DSP scraps used on this card. 

For the tree I colored it with my markers.  Coloring your stamps is easy and fun.  When mixing the colors like this make sure you start with your lightest color and work your way to the darker colors that way you don't muck up your colors lighter makers with the darker ink.  I used Old Olive, Cajun Craze, Early Espresso, More Mustard and a touch of Midnight Muse.  This card is so simple but so so stunning!!!  I used my color spritzer to add just a little spritz of Early Espresso. 
Thanks for looking, see you soon!!!!!

What a great fall card - love the DSP paper too, especially the first edition paper. Good idea.
