Another Fall Card

We've had such a beautiful autumn here and the colors have inspired so many pretty cards. I just had to do another one. Maybe the last for this year --- maybe not!

The image is, once again, Whiff of Joy Charlotte walking through the leaves. This is very appropriate right now since so many leaves have fallen on our country road it is hard to see the edge of the pavement! And I love to hear the crispy crunch and see them swirling into the air behind the car.

Charlotte and the leaves are colored with Copics, all the richest oranges, greens, and yellows I have. I cut the image with the Nestibilities die on my Cuttlebug. The card blank is golden yellow Bazzill card stock. On the front is a piece of scrapbook paper of gorgeous leaves. I like to use wide ribbon, especially when I don't want to detract from the paper. The ribbon on this card is sheer copper-colored with gold along the edges. I found I have several rolls of wide ribbon, then my mom cleaned out her craft room and gave me a bag full of holiday ribbons --- all wide!! She used to make bows for floral arrangements, and these ribbons are beautiful!

I finished the card with a few little Prima flowers and a K & Company sticker.

Whiff of Joy will soon be sending out the Winter 2009 Stamp Kit that I pre-ordered and I can't wait to get it!! I know I won't be disappointed! With that I will be in full Christmas and Holiday mode for sure!

I'm so glad you stopped by and I hope you are having a terrific week!
