Maple Leaves Are Magnificent!

I am originally from Buffalo, New York...AKA Western New York.  The leaves in the fall are stunning, especially the Maple leaves!!  Living in Virginia, I so miss that intense, beyond beautiful array of color!!  There is no other tree that compares in Fall color to the maple...I just got this new Poppy die and had to try my hand at some watercoloring...trying to capture a hint of that wonderful color...
What I love about these dies is that they have the embossed definition in the the veins!!...
Layered the border 3 times and used watercolor paper for the leaf.  The sentiment is from a wonderful new set from Simon Says Stamp, Autumn Blessings!  I am entering this card into the Less is More challenge this week which is a color challenge...Autumn's have shades of Fall in your card
Thanks for visiting me today!! Hugs!! Lisa
EDITED:  Thank you so much, Chrissie and ladies for Showcasing
