Bloggers Challenge 168 Created By Hand

I love it when everything comes together. This week the challenge theme at Bloggers Challenge is Autumn or Fall. The challenge at Created by Hand is Thanks. And, Kitchen Sink Stamps has started back with the monthly challenges with the theme Ushering In Fall.
To create this card I used the Pulled Glimmers technique from the June/July 2010 Technique Junkies newsletter for the background. I combined images from KSS sets: Trees, Big Leaves, and Harvest. I do love the colors of Fall.
Color recipes: All inks used are Adirondack
Tree -- 1 juniper, 2 sunshine yellow, 3 sunset orange, 4 rust
Leaf 1 -- 1 juniper, 2 sunshine yellow, 3 caranek
Leaf 2 -- 1 butterscotch, 2 sunshine yellow, 3 rust
Acorns -- 3 expresso, 2 caramel, 1 butterscotch

Very pretty! Love the grading of color! The leaves on top are so 3-dimensional that I feel like I can reach into the computer and touch them! TFS!
