Fallen hues

Hello Everyone! Happy Halloween too! I have a really quick post today. The boys are home from school, and I need to get them ready for Trick-or-Treating. I will try to post a picture of them all dressed in their costumes. Well onto today's card then. I played along in this weeks Color me Beautiful challenge this week. The colors for the week are Perfect Plum, Crumb Cake, Raspberry Ripple, Chocolate Chip, and Summer Starfruit. Lots of  Fall colors in there, so I went with a fall card-
I used my only fall set, French Foliage. I guess I need to break down and get a new set for fall just for variety sake. :) My leaves are stamped in Summer Starfruit, Perfect plum, and Raspberry Ripple. I sponged the edges of each of the cut out leaves with the same color I stamped it in, then went over each one of them with one of the other colors/sponges I used to give the leaves some depth. Love it!
OK, I am off to get the kiddos ready for a fun filled night. Thanks for stopping by and taking a peek!
