A La Card Monkey's Fall into Autumn Challenge

We have had the best weather for Summer this week here in Washington State, so its sad to think that it is almost Fall. I do love Fall mostly because it's just one step closer to Halloween!!
I had a hard time with this card, everything just did not go my way when I was trying to make it, But I think I really like how it did turn out in the end.

I love the "Rock and Roll" Technique, I do it a lot. Leaves are so pretty when they are done with this Technique. I stamped them in More Mustard then rocked it into Cajun Craze.

A La Card Monkey's Fall into Autumn Sketch Challenge.
 

I did not put a greeting on this card just the little circle stamp that says Paris 1948. I think my Hounds tooth embossing is back words. lol 

The little flowers turned out so cute, I just punched them out smashed then with my fingers a little, then used glue dots to put them on the card. The leaves are from the bird punch, I just cut the leaves off the branch.

It is hard to see but I did use one of the Designer Frames embossing folders around the Eiffel Tower image and some of the Vanilla Shimmer Spritz.
