Happy Fall, Y'all! {Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge #24}

This is my creation for Beate's Weekend Sketch Challenge #24. Her blog, "Fresh & Fun", is one of my favorites and she is one of the BEST of the BEST! Her talent is amazing and she continually inspires me.

For this standard 4-1/4 x 5-1/2 card, I've started with Stampin' Up Pumpkin Pie cardstock folded at the top. I layered on the autumn leaf patterened paper by Karen Foster. You may not be able to see it in the photo, but there is a sparkle around some of the leaves. This was a "free" pad of paper that I got at Archivers for spending $50 last time I was there. The image is from my DIL Jami's new Stampin Up set ~ "Seasonal Whimsy". I almost bought this set and wish I had! I love it! Here, I stamped it with my Pumpkin Patch Kaleidacolor Spectrum Pad. The sentiment "Happy Fall" is a little $1 Michaels stamp. I've layered Stampin Up cardstock really rust and ruby red. The edges are distressed with ruby red.

Happy Fall, Y'all!

Poem for Today ~

I love the leaves
I do not know why.
Is it their colors or how they fly?
They crunch and crinkle
Under my feet;
I pile them up
And take a leap!
-- Beth Paulsen

I got the same paper when I was shopping at that Archivers too. Love the image on the card. Really illustrates the winds we have.
