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.

This card is gorgeous Shirley. All the extra details are great. Love the little trio of flowers in the corner of the image.
