Hello Fall!

 Hi everyone! Well, fall is here, at least once the sun goes down.  The nights have actually gotten so chilly I have had to shut the window and put the heat on! I was inspired to make this card by the background paper that I got as a freebie from my most recent Lawn Fawn order {and where the leaves came from - a first time use from a new release!}; and then when I spied last week's Lawn Fawnatics challenge {it was #109 - Awesome Autumn} this cute card was born! While this isn't exactly a sky, I am entering my card in the most recent Lawn Fawnatics Challenge, #110 - Spectacular Skies - just pretend these leaves are swirling all about in the sky :)


I started with a white card, covered it with Fall Fling paper, then stamped, colored and cut out the leaves and the word fall.  I used the new Scripty Autumn Sentiments stamps and dies for the leaves and sentiment, framing the sentiment with Mini Picture Frame dies.  The frame dies actually cut out in 2 separate pieces, the frame and the middle - I just kept the die cut together {used a bit of tape on the back}, stamped hello and layered on the word fall.    Then I used dimensional dots for some of the leaves and scattered them all around the card without much thought.  Fall colors are one of my favorite themes because I love mixing all the colors; you really can't make a mistake blending with that color palette.  The cute frames are one of my first Lawn Fawn purchases but I don't think I've ever used them before! Well, they are out on my desk now which means I am sure you will be seeing them again soon.  

I am not sure if I like this new format of my blog; it does save me time, but I don't think it flows like my original style did.  I'm sure it will work itself out!  Thanks for taking the time to stop by & I hope you and yours are healthy and safe ~ Christi
