Changing Seasons at FSC

It's time for another challenge at Fashionable Stamping and for this month it's 'Changing Seasons' and for all the details, please pop over to the main blog, where you will also see some fabulous inspiration from the rest of the DT.
Our sponsor for this challenge is Flonzcraft, who are offering one lucky random winner a $20 spend in their online store.
I've made a one layer card, which is a bit unusual for me.  I masked off the borders, then stamped my leaf with Versamark and heat embossed with Gold EP. Next came the Distress inks, Rusty hinge, Wilted Violet, Barn door and Spiced marmalade.. Lastly the script was stamped with Potting Soil Archival.  The sentiment is Inkylicious.
It would be lovely if you could join us for this challenge, but remember, we are a stamping challenge and must see real stamping that follows the theme.
It's a long time since I entered a card at Less is More and guess what - this week the theme is One Layer and Autumn, so it will be making an appearance over there.
I am also entering at:
  Stamping Sensations - Colours of Autumn
  Penny Black and More - Warm Autumn Colours
  Allsorts - No Designer paper

That's it for now, enjoy the rest of your day.

If I hadn't read the info I wouldn't have realized this card was one layer. So glad I discovered that because it's a great inspiration for what can be made on a single layer, using inks and embossing powders only. And your card is a real eye candy!

This is such a pretty piece Avril and the stamping of those leaves are pure perfection.

It is unusual for you to make this sort of card, maybe that's how I mistook it for someone else's lol. Apologies all over again sweets.
