PP512 Colors by Ann

Hello, stampers!  Ann is our Paper Players hostess this week with a lovely fall palette: 

I knew I wanted to create something with some fall leaves, and since I've been happily perusing my older stamps lately, I pulled out French of my favorites...along with French Script, and went to work:

I started with a Naturals White square card base, added a layer of Cajun Craze and a layer of Cinnamon Cider, stamped with the French Script stamp and shaded with a sponge.  The skeleton leaf panel is a new one to me; it's from Sweet n Sassy and I sponged several colors on it before inking it up.  Finally, I stamped the leaves in Mossy Meadow, Cajun Craze and Crushed Curry, fussy-cutting them out and layering them in the corner.  The sentiment was also fussy-cut and popped up, and I added some enamel dots for embellishment:

The sketch I used is from Inkspire Me:

And since it's a large square card, I also made my own envelope using some retired DSP and the retired Envelope Punch Board!  I hope you'll play along with our pretty fall colors this week!  Be sure to check out what the Design Team has created with them as'll find them all at the Paper Players!  Thanks for popping in today!

Here's a lone little leaf I found on one of my walks:

The leaves are finally beginning to turn!  Enjoy your day and be blessed!

"Rich and poor have this in common; The Lord is the Maker of them all."  Proverbs 22:2

This is so pretty. I love that script. The lone leaf knows how to take center stage in your photo. I'm enjoying the river this morning with the sun peeking out every now and then to check on the changing leaves along the river bank.

I'm seeing lots of skeletal leaves on my blog-trip today - yours is the most wonderful backdrop for your fabulous card, LeAnne!

LeAnne, this is so gorgeous. You managed to create so much wonderful texture and yet it still feels so clean. Gorgeous use of the colors. And.. I love your lone leaf - a beautiful spot of color with nothing to steal its thunder.
