Fall Thinking Of You

The card I'm sharing today includes a hue not usually included in the "fall colors," but I keep seeing it crop up in autumn cards this year.
I love how the addition of blue adds the perfect accent to the traditional seasonal colors.
I find that using papers from the same mat stack makes it easier to coordinate the colors, and I love how the leaves turned out when stamped on designer paper.
Supplies and Tools:
Leaves Galore (Inkadinkado), Watercolor Paper, Ground Espresso Distress Ink, Nature's Sketchbook (Stampin' Up), Martha Stewart Border Punch, Knitted Embossing Folder (Couture Creations), Thoughts and Prayers (Stampin' Up), Doily Embossing Folder (Sizzix), Mosaic Memories DP (Recollections)
