Stamping 411 Fall Card

Yes, I'm still working with an autumn theme here. Since the colors and DSP are sitting out, I might as well keep using them. This card came about after seeing a striped strip (say that 3 times in a row!) on a card that I'd done several months ago. I liked the way the strip had all those short little bursts of color. Thought it would go well with the Stamping 411 Sketch this week. I pulled out an oldie, but goodie that I haven't used since last winter. Hope you like it and don't mind all the fall colors. Sooner or later I'll get back to summer - probably next fall!

I think it's really fun to color fall leaves with multiple colors. I just keep dipping from one color to the next and give the leaves all the colors I love. Hope you get some fall leaves to color too. The beautiful colors of nature never last long enough around here. About the time they're at their best, we get a heavy rain and they all come tumbling down. Now I can enjoy these just as long as I want!
Have a great day!
