Book Worm

Autumn = school.  School = books.  Thankfully most of my grandchildren are book worms.

While working on the back to school cards for my grandchildren, I ran across this digital image (printed and saved) which has been in my "to do" stash for ages.  Literally.  With the Kraft Journal Challenge of Autumn in mind, I colored it with earth colors (Copics) and added some fussy cut leaves from old scrapbook kit pieces.  All the colors of the  Baker's Twine are found at the Kraft Outlet and the card base is Brown Kraft, also found at the Outlet.
The image is cut out with MFT Rectangle Stax.  The corners are stickers. Sentiment is cut with a Spellbinder die.
Do you love Autumn?  I do.  It is my favorite season.  We would love to see some of your Autumn theme cards show up at the Kraft Journal.  This challenge starts today, Sept 7 and ends Sept 13.
