CAS-Fall Scene

                   Fall Has Arrived.....
This is my card.....a Fall Scene
I am entering my card into the following challenges.....
The Paper Players-Clean and Simple...Create A Fall Scene
I wanted to create a CAS card which was a 'Fall Scene'
from the Paper Players Challenge.
I die cut The Poppystamps Die called Maple Leaf 
and used this as a stencil/Mask as a basis for my 'scene'.

The following elements have been taken from
 the City Crafter Photo inspiration Challenge.
The hills, birds, sun and fallen leaves
The colour 'red' has been incorporated into the fallen leaves and
the colour 'yellow' into the sun.

The mini 'scene' was blended with distress inks.
I used a stamp for the trees, sentiment and the birds.
I hi-lighted the 'scene' with small amounts of Gold Mica 
to give that extra colour that this time of year brings.
I've kept the layers and embellishments to a minimum for a CAS card 
and loved taking time out to sit and produce this mini scene card.
