Gorgeous Grunge Makes a Gorgeous Fall Card

When someone says "fall card" what do you think of?  The colors? The images (leaves/acorns/wheat and grunge)? Or maybe its the multitude of textures?  This gorgeous fall card has all three.
Fall Card made with Stampin'UP!'s Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set

Really pretty fall color combo: what colors do you use for fall?  oranges, reds, browns?
For this card I used:  Crumb Cake - - Rich Razzleberry - - Crushed Curry

Fall Card made with Stampin'UP!'s Gorgeous Grunge Stamp Set

Rich variety of textures: An outdoor fall scene has so much texture from fresh wet leaves, spikey seed pods, soft airborne seeds and splatters of mud. On this card I included as much texture as I could.
  *Burlap Ribbon
  *Linen Thread
  *Color Me Autumn Washi Tape
  *Sentiment "popped up"
    with Dimensionals

BTW: Washi Tape is a quick and easy way to add some color to a project. And the torn ends on mine add to the "grunge" look of the card.

You can see Stampin'UP!'s selection of Washi Tape here.

Stampin'UP!'s Gorgeous Grunge Stamp SetThe images on this card are from a set 
called Gorgeous Grunge.

Just look at that variety! This is a great set for making backgrounds on  all kinds of cards.

What kind of "feel" do you want for your card?
*Feeling casual and messy?
*In a hurry?
*Want to emphasize something?
*Going with distinct geometrics?

This set can really do a lot!
