Colour Throwdown #418

This week's Colour Throwdown has some gorgeous colours to work with!  I just love fall colours and when my eye caught the maple leaf in the picture I was giddy because I love using them on cards - and it is a very Canadian thing as well {grin}.

I used an MFT sketch and used some negative space for the oval, added some leaves using my beloved  PTI leaf dies as per the colours in the photo and then I added "blessed" in copper shimmer paper as per the pumpkins.  Added a bit if texture in the oval space and a bit of twine to ground things.

Now for the CTD rules:  Once you've finished your card or other paper crafted project, add a direct link to your creation using the Inlinkz tool at the bottom of the Colour Throwdown post.  And, don't forget to use the keyword CTD418 if you upload your project to an online gallery, or hashtag on social media with #ctd418 and/or #colourthrowdown.  Challenge guidelines are in the right sidebar on the Colour Throwdown Challenge Blog in case you have any questions.

Oh WOW! I absolutely love your card! Your fall leaves and copper die cut sentiment look wonderful. Way to rock this week's CTD colors!
