Autumn Colors

I am embarrassed to admit I don't know who makes the stamps I used for the tree and the leaves.  I picked it up a few years ago at my LSS's annual garage sale and it was unmarked!  But it is such a lovely little set!  I used various colors of ink to stamp the leaves and trees.  I then colored in the leaves using my Prismacolor Pencils.  I inked, sanded and distressed the image and the other pieces of my card.  I adhered my image to brown cardstock for matting and then the card base.  I used a strip of olive cardstock and layered it with three autumn colored fibers.  I stamped the sentiments from Paper Trey Ink (Wishing you a wonderful) and the Target Dollar Spot (Autumn)and added a red button with a little jute bow.  Finally I added Crystal Stickles to the leaves for added dimension!

I plan to enter this card into the following challenges:'s Change Riding Hood Red, Old Olive & Pumpkin Pie Inspiration (see below) and Autumn Colors
Two Peas in a Bucket-Stamptoberfest -3 Stamps Challenge
