Fall is here!

Hi Friends! I finally got sometime to create a card just for fun. It's late in the night and both my son and DH are fast asleep and me being a typical card maker with a card design idea right there... couldn't just sleep over it ;)

My dear friends Loll and Bonnie have started a new challenge CAS Watercolor and there very first challenge is Autumn. Watercolor challenge... I had to play along and this kicked in the idea. Thank you so much ladies for starting this challenge, this is going to be my favorite for sure :)

So let me show you my card, it is simple noline watercoloring of a maple leaf(from Inkadinkadoo) on a one layer card :) Sentiment is from Stamplorations Noteworthy set


The colors I chose are inspired by the leaves from the tree right outside my house. Sadly they never get the typical vibrant fall colors, instead the leaves start turning brown. But I guess they have their own beauty and I made an attempt to capture it :)
Here is a closeup...
  
Hope you like it, thank you for stopping by and leaving me a comment :)

  19. Oh Deepti, this is stunning, that leaf looks like it's floating above the card, just gorgeous coloring, even if the leaves around your home do not turn colors all that much, you captured the beauty of this wonderful season of the year in this amazing card.

    Thank you.
