Thankful leaves FMS263

Here is my card for day 19 of the
Color challenge on

You find all the details there.

But this card is also a scketch challenge from the

The color inspriation is from outside in my garden.
The beautiful yellow tree and

all the leaves on the ground.

So I started my card with stamping 
Michael Strong's pumpkin stamps and embossed 
them with Orient Express embossing powder.

The next step is cutting some leave shapes out of the 
pumpkin with thinlits from Stampin'Up!

Here are all the leaves for my card.
So I took my distress markers and colored
all the leaves.
For the finished card I added tiny yellow and green
gemstones. You see also leaves on the background.
Thoose are embossed on the card and colored
with brown distress ink.
For the bottom of the card I used this lined design paper
and had the idea of writing the word thankful on
those lines with a black pen.
And this is the result on the card. 
The sentiment is from Tim Holtz.

Thank you for looking
and have a creative day!
