Peaceful Maple Card

I hope you are having a crafty World Card Making Day.  There are lots of good sales and fun challenges, etc. to check out.  One of them is Kat Scrapinness (sale plus challenges).   My youngest and I attended our town's fall festival this morning which was fun.  I came home and put on my comfortable crafting clothes and headed for the "crafty cave" to celebrate my favorite holiday.  :)  I cut out a maple leaf tag from watercolor paper.  I colored it with a watercolou r technique of spritzing Distress Oxide ink pads and "smooshing" the tag into them.  The die cut design (#223926 Rounded Rectangle Maple from the Silhouette Design Store) has two other layers which I cut from black cardstock and then kraft cardstock.  I used a Tim Holtz (Sizzix) embossing folder and orange cardstock  to do two narrow strips.  The stamped sentiment is from My Favorite Things.  The waxed orange hemp is by Ken Oliver (found a few months ago at Tuesday Morning's).  Definitely CAS and especially enjoyable on this beautiful fall World Card Making Day.  :)  This leaf is going to be falling by:

Today is going to be the last day in the 90's here and the temperatures are supposed to be more like autumn.  I'm definitely looking forward to cooler weather.  I'll close because I want to head back upstairs to my craft room and make more cards.  After all it is not everyday I get to make them on a "Card Maker's Holiday."  ;)
As always, stay crafty!!!!!

Nice cool weather for us in VA, too. I got to sleep with the window open last night!

I absolutely love your gorgeous leaf, and the perfectly coordinating border strips. The colors scream autumn!
