A New England Fall, 3CTC19

This card is for Kerry's Thursday Challenge, 3CTC19. It has been quite a while since I was able to participate in it. I did have this card made from a while ago but I thought it fit this week's challenge perfectly since fall in New England is all about the leaves bursting with vibrant color ever where you turn. I can't imagine not being here to see all the color!!!!

I used the Inkadinkado fall leaves set and inked them up with a Kaleidacolor ink pad in fall colors. The image in the middle is a Just Rite Oval stamp set and I colored it with dye ink markers. I added the word Fall to it after I stamped the oval to balance it out. I cut the oval with my nesties and popped it up to make it stand out. Lastly to make everything glisten I used a small paintbrush and brushed Stickles lightly on all the leaves and the dots under Inspired. By brushing the Stickles it gives a light, thin coat instead of a thicker coat right out of the bottle. You can see it in the second pic that I posted. This makes a fairly fast card with a lot of "WOW" factor, I think.
Stamps: Just Rite, Amuse, Inkadinkado
Paper: SU Choc. Chip, CTMH colonial white and DP unknown
Ink: Kaleidacolor Pad, Marvy Markers
Accessories: Nesties, Stickles, Prima flowers, CTMH ribbon brad, misc. small brads and Michaels ribbon

I am really happy that you took the time to stop by and see my work.
Thank you it means a lot.
Please come by again soon,
