Warm Fuzzies - PCC#61

TGIF Lovelies,

Have you already made plans for the weekend?? Good, cos I am still tangling with mine..lolzz. Friday means Paper Cutz Challenge. This week the challenge is to make a card, LO or craft project using 3 patterned papers. You can use any colors or themes. So fun, right?

The colors are changing everywhere.... from greens to warm and earthy. Fall is setting-in in CT along with rains and storms. I am worried if this rain continues for two more days, it will blow off all the leaves from trees before the peak of Fall :(. Though it will be my third winter here in US, but I really like the festivities...the colors... the aroma of cinnamons... the pumpkins... etc etc. With all these season's warmth, I tried to capture fall with this card:
 A closer look on leaves:
I took a textured CS in orange and sponged the front with acrylic colors in red, olive green, orange and bronze. Ohh!! I liked how it turns out ;). Cut out a circle in between and distress it a little bit. These leaves are hand drawn (as currently I don't have any fall leaf stamps) and cut out off patterned papers, stick them to the card with pop dots. I got this paper pad from S.E.I called "NutMeg" from Michaels in a deal. and it got some amazing papers. just love them. All three of the PPs I used are from this bunch only :).
The sketch is from CPS # 186.

This card is also going in these challenges:

This is it form me. Have a wonderful weekend :)
xoxo
