Res-Q #18: enroute to fall colors


I've been having problems with blogger, so it's taken me a little time to get this posted! This is my card for Res-Q Challenge #18. Jean is our medic this week, and she's taking us on a flight to an undisclosed location. If you can guess where it is, she might have a prize for you. I'm thinking it's somewhere in Maine, but I'm not sure! See all the details on the challenge here: http://resqchallenge.blogspot.com/
The challenge calls for taking inspiration from the fall colors, which is no problem for me. I am embracing fall this year - I was so glad when our weather changed and started to get cooler! For this card, I stamped a bunch of leaf images in various fall colors and added some sponging to take away the "whiteness" of the paper, paired that piece with some of my favorite Basic Grey Indian Summer paper and added my favorite fall sentiment.
Supplies:
Stamps: Darling dots, SU; sentiment, Rosie's Roadshow
Ink: bravo burgundy, ruby red, really rust, pumpkin pie, more mustard, chocolate chip
Paper: really rust, whisper white, Basic Grey Indian Summer
Accessories: corner rounder, Kaisercraft pearls, ribbon, sponges

Mish, this is stunning! The colors are absolutely gorgeous, and I love the clean lines of the leaf images - really fun!! You Res-Q girls really know how to inspire. Hope to get to play now that I'm back to AZ and close to getting settled. Glad that your weather has finally cooled off a bit - it was snowing in Boise when we drove through!! Hellooo!!
