Two-for-One Challenge: Feeling Autumnal

Serendipity! I made this card yesterday for the Create with Connie and Mary color challenge and woke up to discover that it kind of fits the Clean & Simple sketch #216 scallop challenge too :) Since I haven't made nearly enough fall/autumn cards, I was very pleased with how it turned out and the champagne glimmer paper makes me so very warm inside:

I adore the Autumn Accents Die for the Big Shot to make my own leaves and I used the Simply Scored to give the leaves veins. The DSP is from the Comfort Cafe package.  

It was so fun to create last night, but here is what my desk looks like this morning:
And my kids think there should be food in the fridge, so I guess I'll be cleaning and shopping today instead of crafting :( As my Father-in-Law is fond of saying, "Just when you teach 'em to eat dirt, they up and die on you." No bueno!

Love your cluster of leaves. You went all out with putting in the veining of the leaves and shading and shaping. Love the texture and that little bit of bling with the glimmer paper. Thanks for playing the Create with Connie & Mary challenge this week!

Oh - I love it! The textures added to the leaves and the acorn really make it come to life and I love the addition of the glimmer paper leaf. Very nice job! I'm so glad that you joined our challenge this week at Create with Connie & Mary.
