Fall colors

Well, the deer is cut and wrapped! (except for the backstrap and one pack of steaks, really good!
DH is still going out with his hunting buddy (he hasn't got his deer yet) so once again I get to play all weekend long!   Good for me, not so great for any housework, laundry, etc.  LOL

Today I am posting a card using the image "Fall Collage" by GingerLoft Designs.
This is a beautiful and versatile image.  I love the faces on the leaves!

I tinkered with the image in Word and printed the image in that rusty orange color instead of black.  I printed it twice so that I could cut out the second set of leaves and the second clock.  They are colored and then put on the image with pop-dots.
The matting is black cardstock cut with a spellbinder.  There is clear fiber around the picture, between the image and the mat. The streaks of rain and the drops have Glossy Accents on them.  The leaves and ribbon are from my stash. The leaves were green wo I played with my copic markers until they looked like fall instead of spring!  Once again I have used this wonderful DP from DCWV.  If you haven't used one of their Photo Stacks, you really don't know what you are missing!
The card is 4 X 4.
