Substitute for Autumn Leaves

With the cooler weather, I am missing the leaves changing color. We have only Pine and Oak trees, so no color changing at our house. But that won’t stop me from changing the colors of leaves while stamping! To simulate clusters of red, orange, and yellow maple leaves, I used Multi-Step Ivy. I think it works … or does it look like poison ivy?

Tell me what you think?

Happy-Thanksgiving
