Cardmaker Blog Hop- Graceful Leaves

Hello!  Welcome to another Cardmaker Blog Hop.  This month's theme is Graceful Leaves---cards celebrating the first day of autumn with leaves in golden colors.  Here is my card:

 
Yippee! I love fall!

For this card I used the the Gina K Design's set Fall Foliage (that was a stretch, I know!) and created the leafy background using all the beautiful leaves in the set.  I combined inks to get a beautiful combination of fall colors--just like we are starting to see here in PA :)  
Here are the inks I used for the leaves:  Memento Morocco, Memento Dandelion, Memento Cottage Ivy, Memento Rhubarb Stalk, VersaMagic Gingerbread dew drop, Antique Linen Distress Ink (Ranger).
To keep with the fall theme...I backed the sentiment with a scrap piece of burlap to add texture.

I cannot wait to see what the rest of the team came up with!  Are you ready for some autumn inspiration?  Check out these blogs:

Thanks for stopping by!
