Falling Leaves

It is starting to feel like Fall around here!  The temperatures are beautiful!  I love it!  That made me want to create a Fall card and I found several  challenges that fit that desire perfectly!


This card is for the 2 Sketches 4 You challenge (my first time participating in this one).  The challenge was to use the sketch with a decorative border.  I chose to put my border on the opposite side than what the sketch showed. 

The colors were based on Wplus9's color challenge to use yellow, scarlet, green & white.

And. last but certainly not least, this card also fits the Papertrey Paper Dolls challenge that Cecilia hosted to make a card inspired by fall! 

I love how the rhinestones on this card shine!

Fall makes me think of football, pumpkin patches, corn mazes, caramel apples, cappuccino, beautiful trees with leaves FULL of color, etc...  All things I enjoy (well, football SOMETIMES, LOL!)!  What do you enjoy the most about Fall?

Thank you for stopping by today!  You are all the greatest!

  7. Oh my Jen, this fits both challenges perfectly! I like the addition of the rhinestones on your branch and LOVE your branch in the opening of the frame! That is genius! Did u stamp each leaf separately or did u use the big image of leaves? Love your woodgrain layer being the scarlet jewel! It shows up soo well!
