Signs of Fall

This week's theme over at the Outlawz Twisted Thursday Challenge the theme is "Signs of Fall", and for the month of September we're being sponsored  by Nicecrane Designs.

I love autumn and the colors of autumn, and for this card I went with a male look.
The leaf stamp I've used for this card came free with a magazine, as did the bigger cut out leaf. I mixed some different Distress Inks (Walnut Stain, Fired brick, Wild Honey) together to make the paper for my leaves. I used Coffee Arhival Ink for stamping. The sentiment is part of a set from Dylsions. I heat embossed with orange embossing powder on burgundy paper.
I made a frame of wood patterned paper and placed it on top of  a DP with chevron pattern. I'm sorry but I can't remember where the papers are from..

This card is also for these challenges:
1) Crafting When We Can - #52 Repeated Image
2) Great Impressions - Fall Colors
3) The Corrosive Challenges - #182 All about Fall.
4) Make it Monday - Anything Goes
