CTD#259/RS80 - Fall Thinking of You

 Hi there!  It's Wednesday and time for this week's Color Throwdown Challenge!  Our hostess for this week is Melody who chose this wonderful fall color palette and inspiration photo.
I do believe this is my first official fall themed card for this year, it's got me in the mood for cooler weather (it was close to 90 here today).  For my card I used the Papertrey Ink stamp sets Happy Hexagons and Autumn Acorns along with the coordinating dies.  I also used this week's Retro Sketches Challenge #80, but ended up flipping the sketch and instead of doing strips of card stock I went with hexagons.
Be sure to visit the other Color Throwdown design team members for more inspiration using this week's color challenge!
