While the day started off cold and rainy (not great for an outdoor field trip) it ended up as a gorgeous sunny fall day. When I was creating this card for my Technique Tuesday class I was thinking about jumping in leaf piles on a clear, autumn day. We worked on the "masking" technique last night which is a great technique for making a leaf pile : )

In a previous class a couple of us were talking about the colour combination in Stampin' Up's Orchard Harvest DSP....Raspberry Ripple, Cajun Craze, More Mustard, Island Indigo, Lucky Limeade and Early Espresso. Those colours seem an unlikely combination but really do work together. My friend mentioned that the Island Indigo is like a clear blue sky on a fall day....so I went all "artsy" and captured a fun afternoon of raking and then jumping in leaves on this card. Have I mentioned how much I love fall?!
The layout comes from a sketch that I saw on Sketch Frenzy Friday last week. It's so simple and lends itself to so many options. Be sure to check out all of the other cards created with this sketch by clicking here.
For the sentiment I turned to my trusty "Teeny Tiny Wishes" set and used the Bitty Banners framelits dies to "frame" it. The card was missing something so I pierced the perimeter of it using my new Paper Piercing Essentials Pack. It's SO much better than the old one that Stampin' Up used to offer because this one actually has a set of holes that goes down the entire long side of the card!
