Less Is More Challenge Meets "Rock & Roll"

This week on the Less Is More Challenge we are to use red and orange....
I chose Melon Mambo and Cherry Cobler by SU for my inks....
my card is very simple and not at all what I had started out to do....
I inked my stamp in one color, then "rocked" and "rolled" it in another...
I like the color variations it gave my leaves.....
I had intended to add a sentiment, but decided I like it as is......

I am off this AM to a craft show......
my hubby has been out of town since Wed and returns Sunday afternoon...
I have to admit I am enjoying it VERY much...LOL

So while he has been gone I have been busy downsizing my fabric and craft supplies.....
making Christmas tags.....
Christmas shopping.....
and pretty much whatever I want...sigh!!

Your card is beautiful, i love this warm autum colours. And it is an inspiration for me to use my little leaf stamp that is laying for a long time in my storagebox because i didn't know where to use it for. Now i know.
