Bountiful Blessings

 I love the season of fall - as we slide away from summer, with cooler nights and crisp days when hopefully, here in New England, the trees turn to glorious reds, oranges and yellows before they fall to the ground with the coming of winter!

So here is a card celebrating the beautiful leaves of fall!

I recently purchased this double stencil set from PTI called Fallen Leaves and I love the look of the leaves that the stenciling creates!

On the leaf stencil I sponged on Fossilized Amber first, then a bit of Candied Apple and then a bit of Forest Moss. Then I laid the stem stencil over the leaves and sponged with Forest Moss.

I splattered the white background with both a black and orange POSCA pen to tone down the stark white!

I die cut the little acorn with a Side Kick Set called Autumn which I've had for years and never used. I love when I get things out and finally use them!

The Mini Strips Harvest sentiment and mini strips die are from Taylored Expressions.

I'm linking my card to:
