Fall Splendor

I am still enjoying the beauty of our fall season. We have had some lovely colors this year and very moderate temperatures. The other day on my walk I was able to take a few pictures of the changing leaves. So today I wanted to share a fall card.
I decided to use (loosely) the Telescoping Image Technique that Holly showed on Splitcoast last week. It is a very cool look as she shows it. I wanted to also try veering off slightly and not have my images "match up" exactly. It is a variation!
My images are from the Fall Trilogy set by Rubbernecker Stamps. Robert Frost is my favorite poet and I love this quote from his poem "The Road Not Taken." I used to use Kaleidacolor pads all the time, and haven't in over a year, so pulled out my Late November (Stampin' Up!) pad I have had forever. And yep, there is still ink! :)
There are so many beautiful ribbons and trims from Really Reasonable Ribbon that I could have chosen for my card, but I decided to go with a little bit more rustic look. I chose Jute String in Natural to complement my stamped images. I love the texture and look of this Jute. It comes in sixteen different colors, so you are sure to find a color that suits your project!
