PPA 9 Golden Fall






This week PPA 9 is inspired in the colors of Autumn. Although here in Puerto Rico we have green all year long, I remember a visit I made to Washington, DC in a work trip with my husband.  It was on November and all the trees were painted with nature's brush strokes of orange, burnt yellow, olive green and caramel.  It was a beautiful sight that I still remember with pleasure.  I hope I can be back there shortly but in the meantime I am re-creating those memories with my card Golden Fall.  I used Soft Suede cardstock for the card base (115719), retired Stampin'Up Autumn Vine DPS a retired Stampin' Up set "Spring Party" (colored with the colors of fall),  I used the Modern Label Punch (116630) with the sentiment "Pensando en ti" from "Deseos pequenitos" (116841) also available in English. I colored the leaves of the tree with Dusty Durango and Crushed Curry markers and then put a dot metallic stickles over the color.
