SUO #106 fall colours

Well it's spring here in Queensland but I do remember how beautiful Fall is in Northern countries so it was lovely to create using these tones. I am entering this card in the SUO challenges #106. Head over to the Stampin' Up! Only website to see some of the other great cards.
I have used So Safron as my base and background DSP colours but have stamped the leaf image using Cajun Craze and Crushed Curry with the pen direct to rubber technique.  It is always fun to get 2 tones on one image.
I used some so saffron ink and some of the ink left in the stamps to colour my piece of seam binding ribbon. The great sentiment is from the hostess gift for this month " Good Greetings" And I used up a few embellishments from my stash - wooden button, Cajun craze button, safety pin and timber arrow (from a project life kit). I do love the "World of Dreams" stamp set. It's so,versatile.

thanks for looking, Liz
