The Most Wonderful Time of the Year

No, not Christmas.  Autumn.  As I have said before, I love the colors (my favorites), the smells, the weather.  Christmas comes with cold and/or wet weather, expenses, tension, family relational problems.  Yes, I will choose Autumn.
I can't even remember when was the last time I used these Stampin Up stamps.  I have so many Autumn stamps, I don't even use all of them each year.
The BG paper already has a little bit of orange so it was a perfect scrap piece to use.  The big leaf is a Spellbinder die which I cut out of Pumpkin Pie cardstock and then sponged the veins before taking it out of the die.  When trying to decide what decorative edge on bottom of image panel per sketch, I chose a piece of burlap.  I think it really adds to the Fall effect.
Sketch: Tuesday Morning #218

Hope you are somewhere where you can enjoy an Autumn day.  We have blue skies, sunshine, breeze today so I am going to a walk in the woods.

  2. My favorite season! TFS It's been a long time since I've heard that song. I love Nat King Cole's voice especially with the orchestra playing. It makes me want to grab my cup of tea and relax. You can envision God's beauty as HE changes the season. Thanks for playing along. Hope you join our card challenges weekly. -- Twist of Faith DT Princess
