This whole week it has been in the 90s. Today is supposed to be a high of 69.  The temperature was 48 when I took the kids down to the bus stop this morning!  It's crazy!  It was so cold that they didn't even complain about wearing long pants and sweatshirts to school today. :) Today definitely called for a fall card for our challenge at ATCAS
I also used the challenges at Pals Paper Arts and CAS(E) this Sketch!
Aren't those colors yummy?!  I just love Baked Brown Sugar. It is so rich and reminds me of oatmeal, my favorite breakfast food. :) It pairs perfectly with Calypso Coral too!  
I did a bit of full-strength stamping and second-generation stamping with the Calypso Coral to get a few different shades of leaves. I did the same thing with the Baked Brown Sugar for the splotches, stamping off onto my scrap paper before I stamped it on my cardstock. This is a great way to get more ink pads for free! lol

Stamp Sets: Gently Falling, Gorgeous Grunge, Sassy Salutations 
Cardstock: Very Vanilla
Ink: Baked Brown Sugar, Calypso Coral
