Autumn Leaf

Well, don't think I'll be doing simple cards all the time, but this one practically made itself!
I mentioned yesterday that I had a happy accident while working my most recent two cards and decided to combine colors. this is the result!

ETA: I'm getting lots of comments on the leaf punch! Here are some details:
It's made by EK success. I found mine at Joann's in August (yeah, I got lucky!). It's called the LEAF CHAIN LARGE EDGER PUNCH and when I put that in the search I got quite a few hits for ordering.
I punched it and then embossed in an embossing folder (Sizzix @ SU), then inked it up!
Hope this helps! C.
The Cool Caribbean embossed background is matched with a leftover piece of leaf border from Monday's Magnolia-licious card. I fell in love with the two colors ! (did I already say that?) The border has the embossing on the opposite side as the background card stock.
Part of the reason I knew that I could make a quick card was that I had this AWESOME leaf stamped and ready to color on my table too! It is from I Brake for Stamps!

The store has been 'remodeled' for you and remember you can save 10% off your order if you use my code SAVE10CHERYL. The stamps are VERY reasonably priced, too!
Here's the link to the storefront and the leaf above. Mine is the SMALL MAPLE LEAF-2.50-3.25!

Okay, I actually kept the colors out so I could share them with you!
They are Y35, Y17, Y38, YR15, YR18 and A touch of E08. I added a little green to the 'stem' and that's it! I am going to be coloring some pumpkins with these colors to see how they look! I love ORANGEs! I'm sure you can see I added just a few stickles on the leaf edges. I did another leaf and covered it entirely with glitter, but it was too heavy and the colors became muted so it's in the discard pile!
The card base and circle are Papertrey's chocolate-it is yummy with the blue and yellow-orange!

Remember you can go to THIS POST for a chance to win some XPress It blending card from me!
(yes, this leaf is stamped on it!) Just 'leaf' a comment by Friday evening-winner to be picked on Saturday am ET

Beautiful card once again! Thanks for the info on the leaf punch, can you believe I actually bought the wrong punch, lol. I bought a pumpkin chain punch. Really cute but not the leaf by any means. You can never have enough punches though right, lol.
