A Couple of Fall Themed Cards

Boy did I have fun today. My creative mojo was in full force today and I took full advantage of that and made several cards. I won't bombard you with all of them at once, but here are a couple.
This first one is actually a second version of one I made today. The other one isn't fall themed, but I took the idea on that card and used it here. 
This uses a Darice embossing folder called Fall Leaves Background. To get the color, I rubbed ink(CTMH's Autumn Terracotta) over the raised part of the folder before running it through my Cuttlebug. Love how that turned out. I took the sentiment from a Hero Arts set that I have labeled as Happy Thanksgiving. Unfortunately, I cannot find a link for the set on the Hero Arts website, nor on the Archiver's website. I bought the set at Archiver's a year ago at least. It could have been one that was exclusive to Archivers, but I no longer have the packaging to say for sure. 

This next card was inspired by this one. So pretty.

I used an old, retired CTMH set called Fall Leaves and the same Hero Arts Happy Thanksgiving set for the sentiment and the smallest leaf images. 
Colors are Autumn Terracotta, Goldrush, Honey, Chocolate and Cocoa(sentiment)

It sure was fun getting inky today.

Thanks so much for stopping by!
Hope you have a happy day!

I love what you did with the inking on your first card. What a neat look and one that I will have to try.

Your second card is also so pretty. I love all the leaves.

I hope you have been enjoying the warm weather. Hardly feels like November.
