I'm in a sort of Autumn frame of mind - it's one of my favourite seasons and summer has left us again in the UK - mind you it's pouring down today so not a great autumnal day but a good day for crafting. 

I started off my card by using some Really Rust ink from SU (an old ink) and some Old Olive and masked off a square and just did some gentle water colouring with an aqua painter.  I wanted just a nice soft background.  I then used the birch trees from Winter Woods and the little first from Waterfront and stamped them in Early Espresso.  The birds are from High Tide.  

I then cut out a panel with a stitched framelit from some Very Vanilla and added the watercolour behind it. I layered it onto a piece of Cajun Craze.  I added a couple of cut out leaves from Colourful Seasons and gold embossed the sentiment and used an old banner die to cut it out.  I added a heart embellishment.

I'm adding this into the following challenges:

Artsystamper - Fall Flowers
Global Design Project - Trees, Leaves
Color my Heart Color Dare - Tic Tac Toe - Espresso, Ruby, Ivy
