Falling Leaves - CYS

 Hello, my friends and Happy Tuesday! Things are going along well here. I'm in the middle of my third week of this semester and doing well in both classes. The weather has turned a little cooler here. I know that my outside kitties are liking that since they are wearing winter coats. It's okay. It will be back up to the high 80s by next week. I'm so NOT ready for winter to come. 

I'm a little late with this card. It was supposed to be posted yesterday, but with school work, I just didn't get the chance to get a photo and get it uploaded. This was pretty easy. It is for the Challenge Your Stash challenge swap on Splitcoast Stampers. This month the hostess was Tracie and she wanted us to make a card using Leaves - any kind of leaves. I wasn't sure what to do for it, but as I was organizing my craft room over the last few weeks, I was going through leftovers from old swaps and found this one. It is from 2012!!! I'm not even sure which group it was from. It turned out to be perfect for this challenge.

The leaf images are from Stampin Up Gently Falling set which were embossed using gold, copper, and early espresso embossing powders. Each leaf is different. I used a sentiment from my SU Day of Gratitude stamp set stamped using SU More Mustard ink. I also used SU More Mustard cardstcok for the base and the mat for the sentiment. The designer paper is from DCWV Amber Autumn collection. The border punch is from Martha Stewart, but I'm not sure of the name. I colored the leaves using my Copic markers - E02, E04, and E07. It didn't take much to color them up. 

Enjoy and have a great rest of the week.
