The Challenge -#46 Color!

Yes! it is color time at The Challenge!  Or 'colour' if you choose it! 

In Michigan we celebrate Autumn with Color Tours - just a leisurely drive, really.  Because we have such an abundance of Maples here that turn these gorgeous, brilliant Autumn colors... just like those in our inspiration photo this week:


I haven't found a leaf - die, or stamp - I don't love, really ... but I am so happy to be using my Lawn Fawn leaves again.  This time - the Small Stitched Leaves they just released, and a few Autumn colors from my snippet bin!  Yes, even the embossed panel!
 
P.P.P. tag; Concord & 9th sentiment.
 
How do you feel about our Autumn colors?
Seems our guest this week, Mary Valente, and I were certainly on the same page - don't forget to give her some love!
 
I can't wait to see your creations in the gallery!
Have a great week everyone!
 
OH I nearly forgot!  I'm sending this one over to Time Out!
Our trees certainly evoke
"Autumn ... the year's last, loveliest smile!"
[It certainly made me smile to have a little win there last week!  Thank you!]
