Autumn colors

I'm here to share my DT card for the new COLOR challenge over at Catch the Bug, featuring the images from the Mini Set - Leaf blocks.

I struggle a bit with color challanges, so instead of going hunting for designer papers in my stash to find papers that would fit colorwise, I pulled out my inks.
https://www.pinterest.com/pin/141581982012684867/I used them to color the images, there's a mix of DI squeeezed lemonade, wild honey, fired brick, aged mahogny and a walnut stain in there.
I attached the images to burlap paper, then to corrugated card board which I added som aged gold frantage to. I found 3 buttons in autumnal colors in my stash and added those and some brown string.
The sentiment is from Lawn Fawn and is heat set with Queen's Gold EP.

This card is also for these challenges:
Make My Monday - Nature
If You Give a Crafter A Cookie... - #28 Photo Inspiration
Night Shift Stamping - Autumn
City Crafter Challenge - #280 - Fall has Arrived

    I would never guess that you struggle with color challenges, because your cards are always spot-on with the combinations of colors that you choose. I love this one, with the texture of the corrugated background, that tan burlap and the wonderful fall leaves. A lovely way to present the different leaf shapes as you've done the squares and I love the button trims. Looks really pretty against the dark chocolate background with the mustard coloring on the corrugated mat. So many textures and the neutral colors look wonderful together. TFS & happy wkend. Hugs

    I struggle with color challenges too. You did a great job using your ink palette and i like the burlap behind the leaves squares. Wonderful Fall card, Pia.

    I love the delicate blending on those leaves. Like you, I struggle with colour challenges and no matter how careful I am to match the colours, when I'm finished they often look wrong! I like the squares of burlap too. Thank you for joining us at Make My Monday. Marina DT

    Pia, loving all the texture! Really adds to the fall-feel: layers, cozy... now I just want some coffee and a pumpkin donut! Regarding gold: so funny, I don't have gold EP but I have gold leaf! (I have pewter and silver and every other color EP, but not GOLD! Need to get some, and I recommend gold liquid leaf to you. .. so vibrant and fun)

    Such a neat layout, great job with mixing your colors. That is one thing that is nice about Fall colors is you can blend them so easy. Like the corrugated background paper and the burlap.
