Autumn is...

Good morning! Only one more day until my birthday and that means blog candy for two lucky people!

Today I am sharing another Fall inspired creation which will be displayed in my home for the Fall holidays. I love the sketch this week over at 2 Sketches 4 You and they are looking for new DT members, so I had to give it a shot! It would be an honor to work with their team. And, JustRite Friday Challenge is for Fall colors! Put them together and this is what you get!

I used one of the sentiments from JustRite's Autumn Blessings set and cut it out using Spellbinders dies. Then I inked it with Ranger Distress Tea Dye ink, popped it up and surrounded it by all these wonderful Fall colored Prima leaves. I really love using this fabric as a background's so natural and earthy! A little gingham, which always reminds me of Fall, and some grosgrain ribbon and it's done. I think less is more with this card!
