Out for an autumn drive

There's a new challenge over at Dolce Stamps and Cards. Every other Thursday we will post a new challenge and you  have the chance to win a gift card to the store. Please visit: for all the details. Today's challenge is to use fall colors. All of the design team members used fall colors and over on the Dolce Blog you can see the result of my teammates gorgeous cards!
This is mine. After spending a couple of hours watercoloring, I decided I need to take a class. Lots of little detail on coloring this card. I used watercolor pencils. My tip on this card is to be sure you punch your corners and then emboss :-) I'm glad you can learn from my mistakes.

This card does have a lot of detail it must have been difficult to watercolor, but you did a great job. It looks like fall has come.

Your card is beautiful. I doubt I'd even attempt to color that image--it's so detailed! You did a fab job on it, though. Thanks for the tip on cutting the corners before embossing!
