~Crackle Leaf~

Here is a card I finished today~

The cool pumpkin from the inspirational photo of the 

stuck in my head.

I clear embossing the Sweet 'n Sassy Tree Background stamp on green DP and

 took my favorite Tim Holtz color,Spiced Marmalade, and rubbed it on the leaf.

It was tricky to photograph the sentiment, "Amour", even though it's visible in person.

It's such a cozy, rainy day today~the colors are at their prime~LOVE IT!!!

Have a blessed day~
