Simple Autumn Leaves.....

Hello again, everyone: Well, I've been busy making another one of my favorite cards to make, Autumn cards, which I will link up to The Paper Players CAS Leaf Challenge, a brand new challenge, at least for me called Crafty Creations with a theme of "Don't be Blue" (no color blue on your card) and the IN{K}SPIRE_me Sketch Challenge, Woo Hoo!! I love it when I can combine fabulous challenges like these. Here is my card.
This pretty leaf is from a the same set my friend Patti gave me, I used it to make THIS card the other day.
First I place the second to the biggest Spellbinders Nestabilities Fleur de Lis Square Dies  on my Canson water color paper panel and cut it with my Big Shot, I then attached this panel to my craft card base. I stamped the leaf onto this die cut piece with Versa Mark Ink to heat emboss with WOW Silver Pearlescent embossing powder, I stamped the leaf again on a piece of Vellum and also heat embossed it.  I colored the first leaf with my aqua painter and SU markers in More Mustard, So Saffron and Cherry Cobbler, the Vellum leaf was colored with Prismacolor Pencils. I sponged the edges of the die cut with SU Hello Honey ink and placed it on the card like a puzzle piece.
I cut the gold strips from gold paper scraps and stamped the sentiment from the Teeny Tiny Wishes in Hello Honey. I added a few Rhine Stones just for a little bling.
This are the banners that inspired this card. 
 Thank you so much for visiting, if you have any questions, please do not hesitate to ask. 
Till next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.
