"Leaving" Summer

Another week has rolled around and it's time again for Raise the Bar's challenge. This time the bartenders are creating cards with lots of leaves to acknowledge that it's time to "leave" summer! I went with some new DP by PTI and used Karen Giron's layout for the Sweet Sunday Sketch Challenge. I hand dyed the seam binding using Suede Glimmer Mist by Tattered Angels. The edges of the sentiment tag were sponged with Antique Linen distress ink. Two leaf brads finished off this card.
STAMPS: Autumn Splendor (sentiment) & Tag Time - both sets by Verve.
PAPER: Fall Prints and Patterns by PTI, Rustic Cream & Ripe Avocado by PTI.
INK: Always Artichoke, Pumpkin Pie, Antique Linen distress ink by Tim Holtz, Black.
ACCESSORIES: Frame die & tag die by Verve, EK Success border punch, Leaf brads, Seam binding.

GASP!! How gorgeous! I love that you shimmered up the seam binding and the tag as the focus is just wonderful! Beautifully done!

What a beautiful Fall card in such luscious colors...and that sentiment is such a lovely quote. Great job combining colors, patterns and texture.
