The approach of colors are now upon us. I enjoy the beauty of autumn foliage and around my neighborhood there is a street that turns gold and it is stunning to drive on that street and be showered with that beautiful colors.

Today I am getting two inspiration for one card. I got the sketch from CCMC 373 and the theme is from the Paper Players challenge 263.  Of course I was keen to use the Sheltering Tree Stamp Set and it alone sufficed. I used three colors for the leaves: Crushed Curry, Tangelo Twist, and Cajun Craze. The tree trunk is in Soft Suede and the grass is Garden Green. For the image, I use the Labels for the image, which I cut first than went on stamping and getting the image dressed up. I did not want to add more to the card, so a simple, and now retired, DSP along with Burlap Ribbon was enough to get the look completed. I love it and can almost smell the Autumn.
