Color Inspiration 23 - Autumn Leaf

Two color challenges in one day! This one is for Kristina Werner's Color Inspiration #23...and I'm just barely squeaking in under the time limit!! Here is the image for the Color Inspiration, and the colors to be used:

Doesn't it just make you so ready for fall? We've had a bit of the fall-ish weather, though we don't have the brisk coldness in the air just yet!

Anyway, onto the card....
I started with a base of Chocolate Chip (11" x 4 1/4", folded in half to create a standard 5 1/2" x 4 1/4" card), and embossed just the bottom edge with the 'Swiss Dots' Cuttlebug folder. I cut a Pumpkin Pie circle and a Bravo Burgundy circle using my Coluzzle, then scalloped the BB circle with my corner rounder. This leaves one scallop a bit short, so I tied the chocolate satin ribbon over it. *wink*

I stamped the 'leaf' image (actually a tree from Giggle Grove!) onto Very Vanilla, and colored with Prismas in shades that matched the challenge colors, to look like an autumn leaf. Then I stamped the 'friend' on one of the edges and cut it to fit inside a Hodge Podge Hardware label holder.

I adhered the layered circle to the card base with foam tape, and the leaf to that with dimensionals, and attached my sentiment/label holder to the bottom right corner.

Thanks for stopping by! Blog ya later!
