Fall Is In The Air

This first weekend of Fall has been a warm one, here in Pennsylvania, with temps soaring into the upper 90's. That is not stopping the leaves from beginning to show subtle changes. There are touches of red in the Dogwood trees, and the farm fields are full of dried corn and Goldenrod. Achoooo!
I thought that it would be fun to create an Autumn card using a new Impression Obsession stamp that I acquired recently. I enjoyed coloring it so much, that I made 2! It is called Colonial Fall!
I stamped my image with Memento, Rich Cocoa, and colored it with Copics. I then highlighted different places on the scene with a Sakura Gelly Roll pen. Ivory and Rust were my primary card stocks and I added SU! punched corners from a scrap of K&C0. I added 4, brown mini brads as accents.

I would like to enter this card in the following:

Stamp Something: Fall Colors

Have a wonderful Sunday!
