Enjoy the small moments

Hi everyone! Here is my take on the color challenge of Autumn's Bounty over at Less is More.

Sentiment is from Mama Elephant. Stitched rectangle dies are from Lil' Inker Designs.

For the leaf - I used the die from PTI that goes with the leaf prints stamp set to cut out a piece of white cardstock.  I colored it with Copic's and then used distress inks to darken the edges. Then I stamped the veins into the leaf to finish it off.

Distress inks used on the white sentiment panel to get more autumn color onto the card.

The leaves are starting to turn here, but they haven't hit their peak as of yet. I'd give it a couple more weeks. Thanks for stopping by!

ETA: Also adding this into the Repeat Impressions DCC924 ~ Fall challenge.
