Falling for You


Hi everyone.  Today's card is for the challenge at Paper Players (#161 - Falling for you - create a fall card).  I just bought this tree die and couldn't wait to use it!  I also bought this autumn flower soft a few months back and it's my first time dipping into it.  Just LOVE the colors of the flower soft and knew right away what I wanted to do with it.

This card is all dies, except for the sweet little sentiment from Amy R ... I have many, many sets of her sentiments and use them all the time - there is always one that fits my cards.

Here's a close-up:


My only regret is that the tree is not much darker than the fence, so it's a little hard to distinguish between the two (easier IRL).  I love the flower soft on the tree and have also added a few bits that are falling ... and, of course, the pile on the ground.

Spent the afternoon in my art studio making this card while Jer made one for his friend's birthday.  It was so much fun to have this time together creating.



Stamps:  Sunny Sentiments (Amy R)
Paper:  White (C.C. Designs), Soft Suede, Pear Pizzazz (SU!)
Ink:  Soft Suede, Pear Pizzazz (SU!)
Accessories & Tools:  Big Shot, Small Forest Tree die (Simon Says); Four Seasons Fence die (C.C. Designs), Grass Border (C.C. Designs), Autumn Flower Soft, sponges, glue, adhesives and dimensionals

What a perfect autumn card! I'm starting to feel it's really on its way - did some garden clean-up today! I love the way you used the Flower Soft.

This is so pretty, Loll! Love how you've got some of the flower soft leaves falling off the tree.

I love this sweet little tree with the flower soft leaves! How do you affix the flower soft? I have some white and it just occurred to me that when I get to use it, I don't have a clue how! And you enabled me to go look at Amy R. and she has the best sentiments! I'm so excited about them!
