Falling leaves

Autumn is rapidly coming to an end here in Michigan.   The majority of leaves (except for the stubborn ones!) seem to have dropped and been raked or blown away.  But, there are still some places that are into fall, so the autumn challenges still seem to pop up and I just had to create this one to fill a few spots.  I do love the recent doily diecut that I got and used here, as that way I can make them any color I want.  I found the leaves in my stash and just put them through different embossing folders to give them texture.  The pickett fence diecut is a purchase from a local scrapbook store on Monday.   And, the heart diecut was also in my stash that I just sponged a bit  "shabby", as well as around the Bestie image.  Again, I used my prisma pencils to color her up.
