Impression Obsession Challenge-Inspired by Nature

Today's challenge is to create a card inspired by nature. I am ALWAYS inspired by nature, especially in Spring and Autumn when the colours are vivid and bright and the scents are strong. There is nothing like the smell of burning leaves in the crisp autumn air. I created this card as I was inspired by the changing of the leaves on the trees that I pass on my daily walks with Sydney.

We have a full house for the challenge today, so be sure to hop on over to the IOstamps blog to get the links and the details of how you can play to win!
