Clear Dollar Weekend Color Challenge #38 CAS Seasons

Yeah! Another Friday is upon us and so its time for another great challenge over at PaperCraft Planet from the gals at Clear Dollar Stamps. This week our hostess is my BFF, the super talented Cassie. She has chosen great colors to welcome in the fall season, those colors are: Sage Shadow, Apricot Appeal, Really Rust, Close to Cocoa with Very Vanilla for your neutral. I love it when the challenges call for colors I would probably not reach for! That is why these challenges are SO much FUN!!
Right away, these colors reminded me of the fall season, and I wanted to reflect that in my project. I had a couple sets in mind, and finally decided on Walk in the Park which was the May SOM. I love this set, in fact, I seem to favor the nature inspired stamps.
Within the Labels 9 nestie, I wanted to portray the seasons, and only had room for three... Summer, Fall and Winter. I also ended up with a CAS card, I tried to add embossing or dsp or ribbon but nothing fit, so I guess that meant that this card was meant to be CAS, and I love it!
I hope you like it too!
The Details:
STAMPS: Walk in the Park (CDStamps) May SOM,
Shining Strength - sentiment (CDStamps)
PAPER: Sage Shadow, Really Rust, Apricot Appeal, Close to Cocoa, Very Vanilla

Oh Wow Christi! Wow! I just love how you used this set and with these colors. As if these colors were made to be used with it. Wow. I love the pile of leaves. That nestie is so cool. Love it.

This truly is a magnificent card!!!! I love your three trees -- how clever to have the third tree without leaves (and where all of ours are right now, laying all around under the trees!!). Beautiful CAS card!!!
