Loving this challenge! I just went to my ink pads for this and picked 4 graduated shades. I share my birthday with a close friend and we are October babies so this will do nicely for her.
You know how every card has a story... I had planned on just the sentiment on the bottom of the card. Then if I didn't drop the ink pad on the corner. So I had to make it work as it was all put together already. Hence the squares of light ink randomly sprinkled along the bottom.
Thanks for looking :)

Oh, wow, I thought they were suppose to be there! Isn't it great how a 'mistake' can be fixed so nicely? Your graduated colors look so nice, and I love how the leaf has depth to it! She'll love this card~

Great work on this challenge. I love the Fall themed card - your colours are so beautiful and rustic. Gorgeous gold ribbon. I love how you turned a dropped spot of ink into a perfectly stamped panel for this card.
