"A Touch of Autumn"

"A Touch of Autumn"

It is Spring in my part of the world, 
however the autumnal cards that are around in blogland
at the moment have been so beautiful and inspiring.

This card is just a muck around piece combining a lot of different ideas
that I have come across. 
The colours though are what I love the most.


Stamping inside of a stencil is a really fun thing to play around with
(this one is a stamped Darkroom Door leaf which I cut out).
I've left the background fairly plain as I wanted the focus to be on the
leaves and images in them.


I would like to enter this card into the following challenges ~
