Fall Cards

I am attending an upline meeting today, so I don't have anything new to show you, but I do have a few fall cards I have been making that I haven't posted yet. This one features the leaves from Lovely As A Tree, heat embossed in Black Embossing Powder and watercolored:
I wanted to use the leaf-patterned paper from Autumn Traditions, but the background was white, so I used a brayer to "color" it with Sahara Sand ink---now it blends much better with the stripe!

This next one is a layout that has been featured on several challenges lately; again, the stripe is from Autumn Traditions, this time used with Trendy Trees--this is a bit of a repeat, too, but this is a good season in which to use these cute little trees!!!

And here is the inside:
This is a card I made for some of my downline girls....I think this is such a cool way to combine stamp sets! Thanks for visiting today!

I really like the use of the paper, and how you colored the leaves pattern to suit your needs.
