The last of the leaves

This weekend has been wet and windy and almost all the leaves have blown off the trees in the garden now. So after today I probably won't be inspired to make any more autumn leaf themed cards for a while, as a glance out of the window won't provide me with any inspiration. Instead I'll be seeing red dogwood stems and purple callicarpa berries..... and just typing that has already given me the germ of an idea for a card.....

That means this will probably be my last autumn leaf themed card for a few months. The leaf panel is made by stamping a large leaf background stamp with Versamark ink and then brushing pearlised pigment powder over it - I used a copper-red, a gold and just a little green. I've kept the rest of the card very CAS so as not to draw attention away from the panel.

I'm playing along with:

Crafty Gals Corner - Autumn Hues
Sweet Stampin - Autumn Leaves
Lunagirl Moonbeams - Thanksgiving and harvest
AAA Cards - Thanks/Thanksgiving
