My inspiration for the colors is from a Japanese Maple tree that is in our yard. It's supposed to be a red maple tree, but most leaves were green this year (no idea why). Now that fall is coming, new leaves are sprouting they are now coming out red (go figure). The colors in this card are reflective of what's showing up on that tree now -- quite pretty. More info on my blog.
