Autumn leaves

Hello sweet bloggers,

Hope you all are having a relaxed and pleasant weekend...
I have just come returned home from grocery shopping, had my cuppa and Aleeza and I indulged in some fun stamping.
Now to blogging - here is a card that I just stamped randomly with Hero Arts clear stamps. Used distressed ink to stamp the images and coloured them with water colour pencils... Not as good as you do but this is almost my maiden attempt with such kind of stamps. 
The panel at the bottom was embossed and sponged with distressed inks.
The sentiment is handwritten on punched labels propped on foam dots. 

Am going to enter this card for Casual Friday - the theme being Fall.

Catch you later.
