PPA225 - Vintage Bloom

PPA223 - Thinking of You

Hi There! This week's PPA color challenge inspired me to do a very classic style card. The tree and leaves are embossed with clear embossing powder that adds dimension and shine.
It is beginning to feel like Autumn here in Tennessee. It won't be long before the leaves will be changing colors. All the beautiful red, yellow, gold and orange leaves. The hills and mountains are a painter's palette of colors, simply gorgeous!
