Last day of Summer! Bring on Fall!

It's me again!  Back with a fall card but used some "unique" colors.  Instead of the traditional orange,  yellow, and brown colors, I opted to try .....
I told you they weren't traditional.    I really like this Crate paper and it was sitting on my desk beckoning me to use it.   
My card started out for Crafty Creations challenge which is "falling leaves".  The lovely Jaime is sponsoring this week and you could win this stamp set.  The design team has incredible samples to share so be sure to visit here and view them.
This card is based on  Card Patterns sketch #82.  I know I always say how much I love the sketches there and  I really do! 
I found this frame and leaf digi stamp from Tiffany Doodles last week.   I printed it on two different papers and then carefully cut the frame out.  I liked the exposed polka dot paper under the frame so I popped the frame up with foam dots to give a little depth.  I did the same with the leaf.  I added a piece of lace and ruffle ribbon and then stamped the sentiment on the scallop piece.  I inked the entire card with a red chalk ink to highlight. 
I am entering this into the Stamp Something challenge which is for digis.  Anything digi
applies, paper, stamps, etc. 
I am behind on dinner and DD wants chicken noodle soup.  It's in the 90's but she likes her soup.  I promised I would make her it homemade for  tonight so off to complete.

Yay, Fall is here! It's my favorite season! These nontraditional colors are beautiful together and I really like the kraft card base. The frame around the leaf is a very striking focal point. Happy Fall and enjoy the chicken noodle soup! :) ♥♥ Kay
