Brrr, it's been cold here in Maine this week and our morning lawns have been victim to frost. Old man winter is on the way. What a great way to start off today using these sketch colors that "holler" fall to me:

This is my design team card for Create with Connie & Mary this week:

I made my own background paper using the "Gently Falling" stamp set. How quick and vibrant this all came together for me. I also stamped one solo leaf on "Whisper White Cardstock" and sponged the leaf using a "Sponge Dauber" and "So Saffron Ink":
