Are My Colors Giving Me Away?

Can you tell I want fall to get here and bring cooler temperatures!?  We had 107 and 110 degrees here this past weekend.  This is crazy.  But here we are with another Wednesday coming around, which means it's time for another challenge at The Pixie Cottage!  This week's theme is back to school, and there's also this wonderful sketch to follow.  Do one or the other, or do both.  I followed the sketch, using "Pumpkin Bench" by Sandra Hammer, available at Michelle's Scrapbooking.  I colored it with Copics, cut/embossed with Spellbinders Deckled Oval die.  The little pots and flowers are a Rubber Stamp Tapestry set.  All paper is MME. 

Crazy 4 Challenges: Male themed card.
One Stitch At a Time:  Halloween or fall theme.
Cards For Men:  "G"...Goodbye summer. Thank you Mandy!  :)
Creative Card Crew:  Anything goes

Stamps:  "Pumpkin Bench" from The Pixie Cottage, Rubber Stamp Tapestry "Pottery Garden".
Paper:  My Mind's Eye "Home" pack,  The Paper Studio.
Ink:  Copics, Colorbox Queues. 
Accessories:  Spellbinders Deckled Oval, seam binding, leaf charms.

You and me both, Nancy! I'm so tired of the heat up here, too. I feel like I'm back in Arizona! This is a wonderful card! Isn't it funny how the warm colors of fall make us feel cooler after a long hot summer? Totally goes against the science of colors, eh! Big hugs!
