Addicted to CAS Challenge - Leaves

Hi all,
I'm back to share a card for the latest challenge at Addicted to CAS ~ Our Hostess this time is the super talented Anja, and she has chosen 'Leaves' for the code word!


Karren J. won the last challenge, so she is our Guest Designer. And, don't forget that we always have a great prize for the winner...this time Happy Little Stampers is our Sponsor and Kylie is offering a $15.00 gift certificate to her store :) We hope you'll consider playing along with us!
Here is my card:


I love this sweet MFT stamp set...the images are so charming and it's a great opportunity to practice my Copic coloring skills. I stenciled the background with Grout Gray to showcase all the pretty fall colors on the leaves and stamped the sentiment in dark blue for a change. 

So, that's it for me...I hope everyone's weekend is off to a great start ~

Thanks so much for stopping by,

I really love that subtle stenciling you've used to beautifully represent the falling motion, Barb... clever girl! PLUS it reminds me of paisley - which was my momma's favorite pattern, and it is her birthday today! please give your momma an extra hug for me? xx
That little mouse is so very handsome in his red sweater, and denim vest - so happy to see you use this set again!

Sweet Barb - I don't even know how to begin to apologize for being so behind in commenting, so I won't even try; hope you'll forgive me! Doing some catching up - in reverse - this cool, wintry morning. Completely smitten with your sweet mouse, dressed in his fall finery, playing in the leaves! The leaf on his head...oh my! It's the little things that add such impact! Love this!
