LIM week 90 - Autumn

The theme for week 90 on the Less is More challenge is autumn.
I've had the pan pastels out again! I stamped leaves using the SU French foliage set and then cut out a leaf shape and stems from them with spellbinder dies. I then used the waste from the dies to ink versamark through with some cut and dry and sponged pan pastels over the top. I then used the verse and spot stamp from French foliage to do the same effect. The sentiment is from a Gina K set.
I'd also like to enter this card into :-
Polka Doodles - autumn
Allsorts challenge - autumn colours
Charisma Cardz challenge - clean and simple
