Fall IS coming - right??!

So here it is -  a fall card!   Telling me - YES!  this long - hot - humid- summer is finally coming to a close!
I used the colors from today's color challenge over on Split Coast -  2 shades of orange and dark blue!  I did a lot of dry embossing on this -  the back panel and the image panel after stamping - love this look!  When I was done -  it seemed like too much white (even for 'clean and simple' me!).  I found these Jolee leaf stickers in my old scrap booking stuff and they were just the ticket to fill the space and add a little dimension!  Plus - they were in the right colors!

My stamps are from the wonderful fall set by Waltzingmouse appropriately called Peace and Plenty!

I'm also entering this in the following challenges:

All your embossing is so fun! it adds so much detail. Love the pumpkin, too. It's still hot and muggy here, I can't wait for it to cool off a bit!!

Beautiful card Julia! Love the textured background! Still hot as ever here in the desert but there is hope in my heart that fall is coming :)

Absolutely beautiful Julia! I love that waffle textured embossing, and beautiful rich colours, yum! Fall is definitely coming here, it's very chilly in the morning and evening now, and fairly cool in the afternoon, it won't be long before we have to drag our winter coats out!

Julia - I too am so ready for fall! It's still so hot here, but I can feel a slight change in the air during my morning jog. I love your card and the way you incorporated the embossing. Thank you so much for playing along with us at CAS-ual Fridays!
