We meet no ordinary people in our lives

Shopping Our Stash SOS318 challenge this week is to make a card displaying our favourite season... well I just love all the seasons but I especially miss Autumn and Spring as we live in the sub tropical and I grew up in southern Australia with four seasons, so my card today is to celebrate Autumn. I really love the colours the leaves turn and then fall to the ground in masses so you can shuffle your feet - my mum would even enclose autumn leaves in her letters to me.
For my card I made a strip using alcohol inks and then bordered it with a strip of yellow before attaching to a lovely lime green card. Then used a recently made sample with alcohol inks in autumn shades to die cut some leaves.  I sponged dark ink through the die to outline the veins and then arranged them in a group at the top and added one to the edge of my stamped sentiment.  I have used the layout at Freshly Made Sketches #303 for my card.  Thanks for taking a peek
