Autumn Bounty

The colour challenge at Less is More this week, challenge #192, comes from the title Autumn's Bounty. I would think almost everyone would love the colours of autumn, or Fall, and all associated with it, and I am no exception.  Gardeners especially love harvesting the fruits of their labour, gathering up the glut of vegetables, and putting them to good use, either immediately or laying them down in some form for later in the year.  My card is a tribute to all gardeners, many of them in our own family, but sadly I don't  where this lovely stamp originates from as I stamped it at a friend's house.  I do know it is not a digi stamp though.


Just a simple card, with the image coloured in Copics, the background hint of colour with chalk, and some punched leaves to add to the sentiment.  I did emboss the square die, but then almost obliterated my efforts by lifting up the image on foam tape!  The little 'thanks' is by Memory Box and is cut three times from watercoloured card stock, then coated in Glossy Accents.

That's all from me for a few weeks, as we are heading over to the States to visit our daughter again.  It is exciting to see them after over 6 months, and we are also looking forward to the show of Fall leaves we should see in Wisconsin!  How apt is this challenge?  Take care crafty friends, and enjoy the season wherever you are!
