Autumn leaves

I LOVE autumn, with its rich colours and crisp frosty mornings ... and I LOVE TH's limited edition autumn DIs!!!  I created the background using orange and brown tone DIs and dauber sponges.  The circle is one from Waltzing Mouse Stamps and I stamped that in sepia.  I stained the chipboard leaf and vein using DIs and finally added some brown gingham (can't have enough gingham LOL!)


Challenges:
Creative Stamp friends - orange and brown
Cupcake Craft challenge -  take a leaf out of my book
Craft your Days away - autumn/fall
Pink elephant - distressing
1 stop Craft - no sentiment
