Season of Change...

Hello! It's Monika here today, bring you another Fall card. Did you see Jennie's gorgeous card yesterday? What a neat technique on the leaves!

I decided to use leaves on my card too, but I used Season of Change clear stamp set. I loved how my card turned out last week, making my own background with the pretty leaves. 

I wanted to do something similar, but this time, I used different colors. What a big difference from the bright colors!

On this card, I stamped the Kraft background paper with SU! Chocolate Chip, Real Rust, and Poppy Parade colors.

It doesn't look that great yet... but cover it with Vellum (speckled with brown ink), and the difference is amazing! The background is toned down and the randomly stamped leaves don't look so messy.

I didn't want to cover up the pretty background, so I used very little embellishments. Just a Prima flower, Baker's Twine, Pearls, and couple of mini staples...

Thank you for stopping by today. Hopefully I inspired you to make some Fall cards today.
