Hang On For Fall

 Hang on...fall must be coming...eventually!  I spoke too soon the other day when I said it was beginning to feel like fall because today it was almost 80!  It's mid-October.  What gives?!  Well, these little guys are doing their part to bring on a bit of fall - at least to my craft room!

 For my card, I embossed sand cardstock with a stone image embossing folder.  The gorgeous leaf is Neat & Tangled Oak Leaf dies.  I created the background with distressed oxide inks and cut the details leaf die from gold cardstock.  The sweet mice and sentiment are from the Neat & Tangled/Simon Says Stamp collaboration set: Hello Pumpkin (sooo glad I nabbed this set when it was available!)

Thanks to these challenges for the inspiration:
