Less is More week 192-colour challenge

Af'ternoon all, wow it's wet and windy now after a lovely morning and early afternoon. Definitely autumnal which is very appropriate for this week's challenge over at Less is More:

For our Colour challenge this month we have chosen 
Autumn's Bounty
Sounds kinda poetic doesn't it...
so we'd love to see autumnal shades in your cards.
Don't forget to make them CAS of course!

Love the colours that autumn represents, come and see what I came up with:

I was inspired by a card design on Loll's wonderful blog, check it out if you're looking for 
inspiration :)
The centre panel was coloured with Mustard seed, Bundled Sage and Spiced Marmalade and stamped with Walnut stain using SU French Foliage stamp. I cut two plain panels and popped them up either side of the centre panel. I decoupaged two leaves on the centre panel not easy to see in my photo!
The sentiment is an old SeeDee one stamped onto the waste card.
I am also entering this card into Stamping Sensations October challenge which is Warm Autumn Colours.

Hello Val
What a lovely fall birthday card. I made a similar one for my brothers birthday for Nov. I will probably post that card soon to my blog.
I'm so glad to have found your blog also. I am so happy to have you stop by my place recently with your lovely comment. Hope you come back soon.
