Remember Fall?

Today my card was one that I created for a magazine submission but... it wasn't picked.  :-(  It's ok... I get to share it with YOU now!! 

My card base is Pure Luxury Sweet Mango.  I layered on some Chocolate Brown and a layer of Kraft.  I stamped my leaf images from Melanie Muenchinger's, "A Year of Leaves".  I stamped the images and colored them with my Copic markers cut each of them out and mounted them using Pop Dots on top of my ribbon.  I added my sentiment in the lower corner. 

As you can see, I also added my envelope and rubbed the edges with some Tim Holtz Distress Ink in Antique Linen.  I stamped a few leaves in the corner and one on the back flap also coloring them with Copics. 

On the inside I kept it pretty basic as well and used Melanie's "A Year of Borders" and colored them in with Copics as well. 

I really liked this card and had hoped it would have gotten picked, but I do know this... it has helped me to gain a little more confidence in submitting and I KNOW I will submit again. :-)

Thanks for stopping by and have a great day!!! *smile*
