4.  Choose your Markers!  Decide how you are going to color.
~I colored the first card randomly.
~Second Card.  I colored all the “striped” parts Tangelo Twist.  The “Scalloped” parts are So Saffron.  The “Dotted” parts, flower center circle, and Leaf outline are Crushed Curry.  Everything else is Cajun Craze.
TIP:  Start coloring with the lightest color first and work your way to the darkest color.
5.  Cut out your Leaf with the coordinating Framelit.  Attach Dimensionals to the back.
6.  Stamp your sentiment in Mossy Meadow ink on Whisper White card stock.  Cut out with Framelit, punch, or Paper Trimmer.  If desired, stamp leaves in Pear Pizzazz over your sentiment.
7.  Place Leaf and sentiment in desired positions.  Attach with Dimensionals.
8.  Tie a bow with the Gold Baker’s Twine.  Attach with Glue Dot(s).  If part if it won’t stay where you want it, roll up a Glue Dot and use it to attach the Baker’s Twine where you want it.  I used this on Card 2.

Happy Fall Card Making!
