CAS on Friday Raking up the Leaves

Hello again! I am excited to be chosen as a guest designer this week for CAS on Friday!  Our theme is Halloween or Fall, so I pulled out an oldie called Fall For All, because I felt like doing some coloring!  Here we go: 

So....this is probably NOT as clean and simple as I usually make, but I got carried away with this image and hues!  I used the colors from Sunday Stamps (not sure if I'll make the cutoff or not!) because they are so bright and fun::

I stamped my image on watercolor paper with Stazon ink and used reinkers and an aquapainter to color it in:

I added some diecut leaves, then mounted everything on a striped and diecut turquoise piece of paper from Simple Stories' I Am line, on which I stamped a sentiment from Right at Home:

Although, I am pushing the limit as far as this card being clean and simple, I just love this little image and it looks so great in these colors!  I hope that you'll play along with CAS on Friday!  Thanks so much for visiting today!

Trying to enjoy these flowers before the frost comes!

Enjoy your day and be blessed!

It's funny how crafters see CAS differently than others, LeAnne! This totally reads CAS to me, and absolutely precious! Gosh I love raking leaves! I only wished I looked this cute doing it!

That little girl looks so sweet bundled up in her warm sweater and you used the SSC colors perfectly! So glad you were able to join us before the deadline, I absolutely love your card!

So CUTE! I have always loved this stamp set but never got it! Ughh, I know, right?! Love your coloring and the added leaves. So pretty & just perfect for Fall! Beautiful flowers as well. I just cleaned out my flower boxes yesterday and now my back porch looks empty!
