Often I make birthday cards in colors I know the person likes, but sometimes it's fun to use seasonal colors. That's what I did for this card. I'm entering the challenges at ColourQ, SSS Mon & Cuttlebug Mania--I used my Big Shot & Penny Black leaves dies & stamps.
Don't think I've ever used black leaves on a card, but think it works since they're really an embellishment & they're covered with WOS for shimmer. I fussy cut the flowers & used punched dots from the green cardstock with Stickles for the centers since my gems weren't the right color. My layout inspiration came from this sketch done by my friend, Alexandra, in this post.

Our weather has changed to normal, rainy Fall--pruned roses yesterday afternoon just in time & then made Biscotti. Time to have some with my coffee & visit your blogs. Enjoy your day, my friends.
