Color Throwdown #313

Color Throwdown #313 cropped by Tammy Hershberger
Happy Wednesday, and happy Color Throwdown day!  I'm your challenge hostess today, and we're going all-out-Fall with these colors!  I hope you'll join us!

For my card, I started with the Sweet Sunday Sketch #239 for my layout and pulled out my (new to me) Giving Thanks stamp set from Simon Says Stamp.
Color Throwdown #313 by Tammy Hershberger
I stamped the leaves on the tree, then stamped them second generation for some dimension, then added a few more leaves randomly in a lighter shade of orange.  Then I used my Shabby Shutters distress marker to add some dots around the leaves, too... just a little added interest.  I also freehanded some grass at the base of the tree.  After my design was complete, I gave the whole card front a few very light spritzes with some Heidi Swapp Gold Lame Color Shine spray.
Be sure to stop over at the CTD blog for all the challenge details.  And be sure to visit my Throwdown sisters for more inspiration...
