A Fall Hello

Hello everyone!!  This is my second post today, so if you haven't seen the other one, please scroll down!! I had to post this card today because it is for another challenge blog and the challenge ends today...oops!! :)


This is based on a color scheme from the Curtain Call Color Challenge #47.  You can participate by checking out the blog here.  Here is the color scheme we were working with this week:


I knew when I saw this challenge that I would either make a nature type card or a coffee card.  I went with nature.


I used my Spica clear glitter pen again on some random leaves to add interest.  It is hard to see, but I hope that you can see at least a few of the leaves are sparkly.


Thanks for stopping by again today!!! You are all the best!!  Have a great weekend!! I'm heading to a craft fair tomorrow (at least one) and I'm excited about that!

Paper: Kraft, Brown, White, Ripe Avocado
