Fall Leaves Tree

I made this beautiful card for our SUO Challenge using fall colors. I love using this set for just that. I have made countless projects using these trees because they are so versatile. My favorite use for this set is with my students. I use it to make a 4 seasons picture as the culmination of a Seasons Unit. They love to play around with the leaves and make them different colors.

I used a white card base, with Pumpkin Pie cut to 4 x 5 1/4. On top of that I used confetti cream cut to 3 3/4 x 5 with the tree stamped in Chocolate Chip, and the leaves stamped in Pumpkin Pie, Really Rust, and So Saffron. The bottom piece is Naturals Ivory, scallop punched and rubbed with Chocolate Chip, I used the same color ink to stamp "In everything give thanks".
