Fall is in the Air

My favorite season is fall, mainly because in Las Vegas, there is no fall. No wonderful trees changing colors, palm trees just aren't the same. Love to go to the canyons in Utah and see all the amazing colors for the season. This card is a representation of the season, and the sentiment "Thinking of You."

The motivation came from a couple of challenges, Rosie Dee's which was 2 squares and a rectangle. The other challenge came from OCC which is fall this was a no brainier.

Using a pattern paper for the background, the two squares are green and brown solid card stock in the corners of the squares I used a gold gel pen to get a faux look a very small brad. The leaves were created with a paper punch from Creative Memories. The tree from Stampin' Up, Thoughts and Prayers Set, with chocolate chip ink. The sentiment is from a K & Company set. It is hard to see but I also added stitching about the tree in brown.

This was such a fun card to do and everything came together with hardly any effort. I did pick out the stamp first, which I really need to do each time a card its made. It seems that I get too involved in the layout, and then don't have the right stamp to finish the card, have everything backwards.

Hope that this card inspires everyone to do something with these wonderful colors. Have a great day and take the time to do something creative.
