PDC 154 and Less is More 90

Well! It's been a while.

I wanted to play along with the third anniversary challenge at Play Date Cafe.  The color combo was tricky and I had a hard time pinpointing the colors of flame, grape, and mulberry.  I found a few that worked for me and used my favorite SU French foliage leaf.  Again.  I know!  I love this leaf.

This is also my entry for Less is More 90, with the theme of autumn.  I stamped a background of leaves across the main panel.  I really like the unexpected pop of purple in the leaves.  I hope it's not too busy for Less is More.  Fingers crossed. :)  Also, my white space is not white.  I rarely use a colored card base, but I like it on this card.



Thanks for dropping in.  I'm slowly working on getting caught up on my commenting.  Life has been crazy.

I like it, too, Ann, you rebel! It definitely needed a non-white-space cardstock. Your brilliantly colored leaves are, well, brilliant!!
