Autumn Colors

Hi Everybody,

Now I know it's cold and Christmas is on the way ... but I thought a little card in Autumn Colors would make a change

This is the  Leaves A Fallin'   die from Spellbinders and is one of the new ones from the Trendy and Simple Collection.

I have just cut the entire die out as it is and added it to my card but you could also cut the leaves out of the card and use them individually in a flower display.

I have changed the color scheme too as my usual choice is white base and a pastel color.

But for this card I have gone for deep brown and tan with a lovely olive green.

The flowers are deeper colors too and they are from  Wild Orchid Crafts  and I have added in the sparkle with glitter from Glitter Magic

The ribbon  is some that I brought back from my trip to Joannes craft store in Phoenix  but I cannot remember where the large Autumn leaves are from.

Into the mix I have added three small Hatpins in colors that match the card and the inside has been lined too.    Sentiments Four    is cut all in one strip and so easy to apply and especially good if your hand writing is untidy ... like mine !!

Want2Scrap  self adhesive pearls are all around the frame.  Different for me but I do like the card

More tomorrow ...

Hugs xx
