Leaves and more Leaves

I am holding onto summer with everything within me but I have a weakness for fall leaves and fall colors. 
 With the yellow and mint I kind of stayed with a slightly summer look but I still used leaves.  That really cute sentiment is from Paper Smooches and of course the background is the result of playing with some Distress Stain and watercolor paper. I used the Friday Mashup sketch for my card as well as the Addicted To CAS challenge to use leaves.  
 These leaves are die cuts from Lawn Fawn.  I feel in love with the great veins that the dies cut.  The leaves were also colored with Distress Stains.  
 Here is the Friday Mashup challenge.
Thanks for visiting, Linda (lbpost)
