It's still 90 degrees here in Oklahoma...not very "Fall-ish", but I'm defying the weather and pulling out pumpkins anyway. And Fall colors for this week's Color Dare are helping, too.
I am also linking this up to CAS-ual Fridays Challenge: Fall Colors + at least one leaf and Inspired By: #89,
The Olive background (chicken wire) stamp is from Distressed Backgrounds set. The border along the top and bottom of the chicken wire is hand-drawn using a coordinating Olive marking pen. To create my leaves, I used the stamp set One Way Borders.
I could have cut the leaf shapes from Art Philosophy, but I just got back from another "crafting away from home" session, so my Cricut wasn't set up. Instead, I created the pattern, stamped the leaf from the coordinating Art Philosophy stamp set on the back side, then hand cut it. To give the finished leaves a little more definition, I sponged Autumn Terracotta around the edges.
The sentiment is from one of the other Art Philosophy stamp sets. I stamped it in Goldrush then "rolled" it in Autumn Terracotta just along the bottom.
The jute and buttons were affixed with Liquid Glass (I love that stuff...simply love it). This card is a little thick for the mail, so I'll hand deliver it to my sister-in-law when I see her a couple weeks after her actual birthday.
The weather is supposed to drop as of tomorrow...only 85 degrees. For this born and bred native Washingtonian, that's just too darn hot for Fall. Maybe I'll turn my air-conditioner down to 65 and light a fire.
Until next time,
