Challenge Time

What a chilly morning! Lots of frost on the ground too. Got my youngest on the bus this morning at 7am and didn't crawl back to bed. Instead, I hit my stamp room to make a card for a couple challenges. I recently got this autumn leaves die from Spellbinders and simply had to use it. While they were still in the die, I sponged color onto the leaves and pine cones. I should have used several colors on the more solid leaves, but I wasn't thinking so early!! The swirls are a punch and the sentiment in from A Muse. The challenges I want to submit this to are:

The Outlawz Challenges - Sketch
Stampin' Royalty - Color challenge (chocolate chip, pumpkin pie, gumball green (I don't have, used old olive instead), so saffron)
Love to Create - Shades of Autumn
