Autumn Leaf

Hi there and happy Monday!  We're having crazy weather - supposed to reach the 80's again today!  Sure doesn't seem like Autumn, which is what today's card reflects.  The leaf shape was cut out with the Stampin' Up! Autumn Accents Bigz Die.  Colors of Hello Honey, Pear Pizzazz, and Tangerine Tango were sponged on and the edges inked with Soft Suede.  The background splatters were made with images from Gorgeous Grunge and the banner sentiment is from the And Many More set, which is a great set!  It covers just about every ocassion.  A bone folder was used to break down the fibers in the cardstock to make it easier to crumple up and, hopefully, not tear. 
The Hostess Club ladies made this card at our meeting on Saturday, which was CASE'd from a card that I received at a swap last month.  Unfortunately, there was no name on the back to give that person credit.  The only thing that was changed was the sentiment.

That's all for now.  Need to knock out a few chores before going to visit a dear friend in the hospital.  Later tonight I pick up the daughter and son-in-law from the airport, which means Rocky (our granddog) goes home.  :(
