Check out the fall inspiration the DT has for you today:

Fall is my favorite... the best weather, beautiful rich colors, pumpkin pie (need I say more?). It's my favorite season and my favorite cards to make. Whether it's coloring fall leaves and pumpkins with Copics or creating fun Halloween cards... I love it all! And I know the challenge was Fall Florals... so I'm cheating a bit using just leaves. Just go with it! I'm a big fan of leaving white space on card and I struggle with it constantly. ask me to throw together ten layers... no problem, but keeping it CAS isn't easy to me. I thought I'd try my hand and keeping it clean with a few pops of bold color today.

 I could honestly color fall leaves for HOURS. Everyone turns out different... you can mix a ton of Copics, layering and mixing your colors endlessly.

 The leaves are cut out and popped up to be at the same height as the stitched frame. I added a few enamel embellishments. All of the stamps used are packed in one yummy fall clear set called Autumn Leaves.

On the inside, I always add a liner to my cards. I stamped and colored some matching small leaves, leaving lots of room for a little note to written. The finished card is an A2.
