Time Out: You are Appreciated


We are back at Time Out with a fabulous inspired by words challenge:
Autumn...the year's last, loveliest smile' (William Cullum Bryant)

I love fall colors...and distress inks are the perfect inks to add to your cards to have gorgeous fall colors. For today's card, I pulled out a few different colors and inked up a piece of scrap card stock.  I then die cut the maple leaves from Frantic Stamper to have a variety of colors/gradient looks across the leaves. To finish off my card and add a little texture I attached a touch of twine. The small leaves were super easy to adhere with mini glue dots.

Above shows a close up of the fabulous details on these dies. They cut perfectly!
