Diva's Weekly Challenge #289: Leafy Goodness and InkTober 18-23

I'm still playing catch up with the weekly challenges! Seems it's all I can do to post on the Monday after the challenge comes out! Challenge 289 was to incorporate autumn leaves into our tile. Normally, this is a personal fave. I love autumn. I love leaves. What's not to like? 
Here in North Carolina, our leaves are not at their peak. It's been quite dry, in spite of Hurricane Matthew that devastated the eastern   counties, many of which are still housing folks in shelters. (The historic town of Princeville opened back up only last week to its residents.) It's also been unseasonably warm, so many of the leaves are still on the leaves with a bit of color, but lots of green. Mother Nature seems at a bit of a loss, sadly. And so was I. I enjoyed searching for leaves this week, during several outdoor ventures. I finally found one yesterday that was a) not shriveled and b) nicely colored. I traced it and just filled it in with line work, then surrounded it with Printemps. Not my favorite, but here it is.

Somehow, I have managed to keep up with InkTober this week.
