Inspired by all the little Things 29

Hey Friends, How's your October going? Flying by, right? Today for this weeks' inspiration I used a Simon Says Stamp stitched leaf die to cut my wood grain paper. Underneath I placed a prepared piece of watercolor paper. 

To prepare it, I sponged Ripe persimmon, Mustard seed and maybe Peeled paint ink on the paper then splattered some watered down Copic white. I added a Avery Elle vellum die cut banner that was heat embossed in gold. (Hero arts) 

As a final touch I added clear dew drops to mimic the raindrops in the inspiration. I kept it simple so this card could be used for multiple reasons.
I hope you come by the Inspired by all the little Things blog and see what the other inspiration awaits you! 

Some other challenges I will link to are:
Fussy and Fancy Challenge 175 -Shades of Autumn
Moving along with the times -Trees and or leaves
DRS Designs Color challenge
The Crafty Addicts Challenge 26 -Anything goes/Autumn Colors
