Gorgeous colors and design Maura. I know how much work it is, even if it only is a few steps in your description :) Love that you've masked off the area to create a border --- perfect! Thanks so much for joining us at ATS&M. It would be great if you entered this into the Mixed Media Card Challenge too (Autumn Colors).

Oh I love this!!! STUNNING colors in the focal image, and those leaves are tremendous!!! Beautiful that you used a similar palette behind the card to frame it for the photo, brilliant!!! Going into my favorites, I can't wait to pull out this SU set that I've never played with--you've totally inspired me. I love, love, LOVE leaves and especially fall leaves!!! This is such a stunning card!!! I'm drooling! :)

This is so beautiful! I think I am going to have more favourites than normal to share on Sunday, this is one for sure. I love everything about it - the masking, the use of both white and the dark red for the leaves and the splashes, and the whole layout with the leaves drifting across on the diagonal.
