Multi Challenge Autumn Project

I usually try to do individual projects for each blog challenge I enter but so many blogs have Autumn Challenges at the moment I decided to make one project to fit in with three blogs challenges I was going to enter this time.

The Sweet Stampin' challenge blog wants Autumn Leaves, Anything but a Card has Halloween or Fall Colours and CD Sunday Challenge would like Autumn Splendour.

I decided to make a triptych though I am not sure if this really is one--it is my version of one. The background paper is from a S.W.A.L.K CD-Papercrafting CD-ROM 2  there are some lovely paper designs and images on the CD and they print out really well.

Next I stamped a row of trees and some leaves all in Autumn colours. Not a clue who the stamps are made by as I have them for years-before I joined in Blogland and started to keep the names of who made what. I then cut the picture into three and stuck it on a piece of coloured card and added some more leaves and peel-offs. Lastly I went into the garden and collected some leaves to add effect to the photograph
