Deep Colors for Lighthearted Leaves

Fall is such a beautiful time of year, if only it could last a little longer so we could enjoy all the rich colors of the leaves.  

Here in Wisconsin most of the leaves are already gone. But my husband and I had a chance to spend last week in the Charlotte/Asheville area where we got to enjoy the colors all over again. 

This gorgeous shot was taken at a State Park by Lake Lure, NC called Chimney Rock.  Lots of stairs to climb to get this view, but absolutely well worth the hike.

Apparently I came home feeling very colorful.

I like using this lay-out and had wanted to play with the "4-square" design using a leaf stamp. I decided to use the colors for the background rather than the leaves themselves. What do you think?

The leaves are from the Lighthearted Leaves stamp set. They're designed for coloring, so I'm thinking of playing with this card and switching it up a bit, maybe stamp on white and color each leaf. 

There are lots of different colors of cardstock used on this project, but if you're like me I keep at least 1 package of every color on hand. That way when I'm feeling creative I don't get frustrated by a lack of basic supplies.

Here's the supply list for this card.

Thanks for Stopping by: Take a minute and browse previous posts. If you see anything you like I'm happy to help you get the product or just to consult and explain further how the project was made . . . its all about having fun with our hobby.
