Retro Autumn Thanks

In case you missed it, I love the Fall.  I think my favourite thing about this season is the vibrant and rich tapestry of colour nature provides.  Like it is the last hurrah before the dull grayness of winter.  Today's project a celebration of Fall colours.  I based the layout on this week's sketch over at Retro Sketches.  First, here is the sketch:

And here is my card:

Autumn Thank You card for RS27 featuring the French Foliage stamp set and Orchard Harvest DSP
I told you this card was all about colour!  I really love the Orchard Harvest DSP...there truly isn't a single pattern in that pack that I dislike...not something I can always say!  I used it as the basis for my colour scheme:  Lucky Limeade, More Mustard, Island Indigo, Cajun Craze and Early Espresso.  I embossed the card base with my woodgrain TIEF...where has that one been all my life?!?  I added a couple of little Naturals Designer buttons and some quilted satin ribbon from last year's Holiday Mini.  Can you believe that is the only ribbon I own in Early Espresso??  Gonna have to do something about that with my next order.  in the meantime I hope you'll forgive the use of retired product :)
