Papercraft Star Challenge 66 Fall Leaves

I just love all the warm earthy colors of Fall! There are so many beautiful shades of red, orange, yellow, green and brown starting to show up in trees here in the south. It's just breath taking here during the peak of the season. The Great Smokies are incredible this time of year!
Here's another picture of my card in the sunlight. you can get a better glimpse of the metallic rub-on paste I used to highlight the leaves on the embossed background. It looks so pretty on the red cardstock and goes so well with the Log Brown seam binding ribbon.
Here is the photo inspiration for this week's challenge at Papercraft Star.
Isn't it gorgeous! It makes want to take a nature hike and find a spot for a picnic!
I hope you will come play along with us this week. I'm sure the other designers will inspire you as well. You have until 6am Eastern time Monday to link up!

You could win some great digital images from our sponsor The House Across The Bay. Perhaps even the Inked Grunge ATC 148 that I used to make the focal point and leaves in my card ;)
