Addicted to CAS Challenge - Autumn/Fall

This is the first time that I have been able to post for a few weeks as I have been enjoying a break in not so sunny Devon.  It was good to get away and get some sea air and enjoy the lovely scenery.

Anyway, here I am with a card that I am entering for the Addicted to CAS 23 Challenge  -  the theme is Autumn/Fall.  

This is the first time that I have entered one of their  challenges although I am always looking for inspiration from their amazing designers  - I hope this is up to standard!

                                 Autumn Leaves

Supplies: Clearly Besotted Stamps
Stamps and dies - 'Leafy Accents'
Sentiment - 'Butterfly Wishes Additions'

I just love this 'Leafy Accents' set of stamps from Clearly Besotted Stamps .   I have used it so much and now that the dies are available it makes it even more versatile.    I stamped the leaves in Adirondack Butterscotch and Versa Magic Red Brick for the orange tones and Adirondack Lettuce for the green leaf.

The Tag is hand cut and embossed on the lower edge with a Cuttlebug embossing folder 'Wicker Weave'.   I finished off with some yellow twine and a little bit of bling.

I hope you like it and thank you so much for visiting.
