Earth Becomes a Colored Quilt...

I now have three out of the four season D. Morgan stamps from Stamps Happen. My plan was to get all four and make a wall calender, that's how much I love these stamps! I'll have to get the summer one soon and get to work on my calender!
In the meantime, here's a card with the Autumn stamp, how GORGEOUS is this image?! It's so big, it hardly fits on a 5" x 7" card, but I love it regardless.
Coloring it is always a bit of a challenge, however, as the lines are pretty freeform and sometimes I really have to study the area I'm getting ready to color to figure out what's what! But the end result is always spectacular, and so worth it!
The rest of the card I kept super simple, just some ribbon with a button, I don't want any of the papers or embellishments to compete with the image. Gets too distracting.
Anyway, hope you like it, thanks for looking!
