  1. The colors are just gorgeous, and I love the technique that you show with the Vintage Leaves! I’m going to try that on my next card. Thank you for all of the inspiration!

  2. such wonderful presentation! \I love those colors, but wouldn’t think to put them together; thank you for sharing your ideas!

    • These are bright colors aren’t they Sue? We first thought they looked more like summer colors, but we like how they turned out on the cards. A great transition from Summer to Fall. Thank you for your comment.
