LIM41, Embellish - LEAVES

Leaves!!  They are everywhere right now - and not attached to the trees!  There is a house in particular that I think about every year at this time.  It is a teeny cottage on a tiny lot near where we live that has the most beautiful huge tree in the front yard.  I'm pretty confident that they bought that house in the spring, summer or winter.  Why??  Because in the fall, when the leaves drop, that front yard is literally about 8" deep in leaves!!
We are suckers for gorgeous trees too - one of the big attractions to our home was the huge tree in the backyard - so gorgeous but we have a long haul to get the leaves to the front curb to be picked up.  As much as I hate those leaves right now, I am very grateful for their shade in the summer!!  Today's card is based on the One Layer Challenge on the Less is More Blog and the colors from the Embellish Color Trends Challenge.
The leaf stamp is from the Autumn Beauty stamp set and the sentiment is from Monogram Frames.  Ink colors are Currant, Eucalyptus and Fern.  All supplies are from a muse|studio and are available in my online shop!
