Leaves are falling at A La Card Monkey with My French Foliage Card

Hi Blogging Friends!! I live in Washington State and it is so Beautiful here in the fall. I have a bunch of Maple Trees in my yard and all of them are a different color right now. I should take picture and share them with you.... I will try to do that.

I am going on a road trip with my friend Deanna this weekend, we are going to Spokane. I bet with all the Fall Color it is going to be a beautiful Trip. I am coming back late Sunday, so I might be late in picking my MMMHC Blog Hop winner of week 8. I am taking my laptop with me but you never know if you will be able to find Wi-Fi.

I ruffled the Baja Breeze ribbon by just pulling the string on the edge. I did not want to go with just fall colors so I decided on the Baja Breeze... I think it looks good together. What do you guys think.??

Here is the sketch

It might be hard to see, but the leaf in the center is stamped in So saffron and rolled in Pumpkin pie. I sponge around the image in So Saffron.

I used the "Rock and Roll" Technique on each leaf.

First leaf : Stamped in So saffron rolled in Pumpkin Pie
Second leaf: Stamped in Pumpkin Pie rolled in Early Espresso
Third leaf: Stamped in Baja Breeze rolled in Pumpkin Pie

I also used a sponge dauber on each leaf in So Saffron.

Ink and Paper Colors:

Thanks for looking... I am off to catch a Ferry to Edmonds!!

I love the colors you've chosen. I think the Baja Breeze looks great with the fall colors. It looks great on the leaf too. The embossed background really shows off the stamped images. Thanks for inviting me along for a GD ride this week!
