Baby Moose, Autumn Leaves & a DT Call!

Autumn is in the air!  At least it is at night here in Southern AZ.  We're still in the mid 90's during the day but down into the 60's.  It's nice to get some cool air for a change.  Sure beats 100+ for highs and 90's for a low!   Since it's beginning to feel like Autumn I thought I'd make a card using the fun Autumn digi papers from My Time Made Easy for this week's sketch.   For the Design Team Call info, scroll down.

I used MTME's Color Infusion.  I wanted to change the green leaves to yellow and with digi papers it easy-peasy!   Lauren has a quite a few video tutorials on how to use the digital files and you can do it all by using a FREE digital program called GIMP.  I use Photoshop Elements 5.0 but they basically work the same.  If you have a specific question, I'll be happy to try to help you.  I'm no expert so you know that "If I can do it YOU can do it!"   Also, when you purchase any digi product it comes with instructions for use.  I'm having a lot of fun with these great digi papers and stamps.

I turned the sketch on it's side so I could use the tree patterned paper on the right side of the card.  I combined the digi stamps Happy Hallows and Wonderful Woodland Creatures.  Don't you think the baby moose is so cute?!  I tried to match my copic marker colors to the designer paper colors and had a few of the flower-leaves falling to the ground.   

I embossed the raspberry colored cardstock with the QuicKutz "leaves" embossing folder.  I couldn't decide which side I liked better the embossed or de-bossed side but ultimately I chose the de-bossed side.  I liked it so much that I used a larger piece than what was in the sketch so you could actually see it.  :)  

Thank you for your visit!  I appreciate each visit and comment!  I hope you will stop by the MTME Pretty Patterns blog and join in on the fun!  The sketch is below.
