Wine, Pumpkin, and Moss

I loved the colors that were chosen for this week at the Play Date Cafe:


......wine, pumpkin, and moss.  I remembered this digital Hero Arts tree called Basic Tree, and printed it out, then colored it using the 3 colors, plus light brown for the trunk.  Since I collect autumnal papers, it was easy to find some coordinating ones to pull the colors out further, and this Webster's Pages' pleated ribbon from Sue worked, too.

PDCC151

supplies: cream cardstock, dps from BoBunny Very Vintage Dots,  Simple Stories Harvest Lane, and Crate Paper Farmhouse collections, EL Success Binding Edge punch, Hero Arts Basic Tree digital image, Memento and Tombow markers to colors, sentiments from The Paper Company Studio Autumn Stamp Kit, brown ink, Webster's Pages green pleated ribbon trim, October Afternoon 9 to 5 button, twine

I edged all the papers with vintage photo distress ink before assembling.
