Fall is in the air...

This is my second post for today, if you are looking for my Paper Sundaes post, please scroll down. The other card I made today was because I was in a fall mood. I am making chili today, gonna watch the game (Go Steelers!) and thought I would try to use my silhouette machine some more.

This image is by Pink Cat Studios and I am entering it into the All That Scraps challenge which is to make a fall themed card. I love the images ATS carries, CC designs being at the top of that list. I need to make a point of using them more. Anyways, my leaf border I cut out with my silhouette machine and painted with some Luminarte paints, it didn't come out as planned but it will do. I downloaded a free picture of an acorn, embossed it a bit to give it a little depth and glued those on as well. My flowers are from WOC and I glittered up the edges with some of the new MS glitter paint. Love that stuff! Ok, off to  decide what is next on my list of things to get done today!

I love how that leaf border came out, Amanda! A really beautiful card! That image is uber sweet too - I didn't realise they stocked those! Will have to see if I can find a UK stockist!!

Hope you are having a lovely weekend!!

Nice fall card, love the leaf and acorn border. I just purchased an image from Pink Cat, just haven't had time to assemble it onto some foam yet. I thought the little girl was so cute. I'm sorry I never got back to you about inking edges, my son and I were sick this week, and it was a rough one for me. But I was happy to see a couple ladies were able to help you. Hope your doing well.

Hi Amanda, lol... even though I should root for Seattle, the Steelers did their job and really made some fantastic plays today. I love to sit with my hubby and watch football while it is cool outside (very today... Started out by raining) and have some spagetti sause on the stove. Love love, love it almost as much as summer. As for your card I think you did a wonderful job of capturing that all so wonderful fall feeling. I really love your card and all the fall colors. Great job my friend. Hugs, Lisa
