IO Challenge- Backgrounds

The IO challenge today is all about backgrounds, and I have to say, I absolutely love the new Oak Cover a Card background (CC181).  It works so well for Fall cards!  For my card today, I paired it with the Fall Words stamp (F14019) and the new Pine Cone image (C16028).  Normally I think of pine cones as a winter image, but I thought it worked well with my monochrmatic Fall card.  To color the pine cone, I used an assortment of Peerless watercolor paints and popped it up with foam tape.

Need more background information?  Check out the work by the other designers:

A magnificent Fall card. The pine cone does fit very well and is beautifully painted.
