Fall is in the air...finally! We have had the dryest August on record, and today it was cool, breezy and you could feel that fall is just around the corner. Nothing is more beautiful than the Pacific Northwest in the fall.
I hand cut the Pumpkin pie design in this card, used the 1" circle punch to raise the Lucky limeade center and embellished the design with Basic pearls for the finishing touch. The Decorative label punch was used for the sentiment as well as the layered effect behind the sentiment. I cut the label in half horizontally and staggered the pieces so they created the border around the original label. This is a card I brought to our American Ink demo meeting as a M&T.
Although the colors on my card aren't the typical "fall" colors, they are part of the Pals Paper Arts Challenge #142. I love this color combination!
Pink Paper Bakery has a Fall theme challenge, and I thought the Day of Gratitude set was perfect for this challenge.
The card sketch I used was from Freshly Made Sketches #51. This is a site I refer to often for sketches ;)
