Less is More #90 - Autumn

This week it's a Theme challenge at Less is  More - one of my favourite themes, Autumn. I love Autumn colours - I wear them, decorate my house in them and love crafting  with them. Here is my Autumn themed card.


The embossing powder I used for the leaves is a blended one called "Tiger" -  it's a mixture of russety browns and deep olive greens that is perfect for Autumn leaves. However I think if I ever met a tiger that colour I would be terrified! (Disclaimer - If I ever met a tiger of any colour I would be terrified, unless there was a tiger-proof barrier between me and it. But if it was this colour I would be *more* terrified.)

It doesn't really show on the photo but I curled the leaves to give them a more natural Autumn look and attached them with different amounts of gel glue to conserve the curl.

Unusually for me and CAS cards, I got the effect I wanted first time, so I'm afraid I have no bloopers to share with you this week!
