Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Lovely Leaves Reminder

 photo CCSept7pic.jpg

Fall cards are often a "no-brainer" for me as most times, I simply reach for PTI's Leaf Prints and matching dies and go from there.  This card was no exception.  Maximized the number of wonderful fall colours and then added my beloved leaves to the mix.  Happy sigh... :)    Just wish raking them off my lawn when they fall would be as much fun as putting them on cards LOL!

We'd love to have you play along if you haven't already.  You have until September 10th to link your card to the Curtain Call Blog. The LEAD and Show Stoppers for this challenge will be announced on September 14th, and our next challenge will begin on September 15th.

Have a great day!

Your card shines with fall loveliness in images, patterns and colours. Gorgeous! I bought some new leaf dies while in Edmonton and am excited to give them a go later today! Hopefully something will emerge that I can share before the gallery closes.
