Hello, fall?

The temperatures here are still heading into the 90s every day, but I keep hoping if I act like fall is coming, it eventually will. So I made a fall card.

The image is from A Day for Daisies, colored in pencils. I used a piece of faux wood-grained card stock (part of my stash of pre-made items I'm trying to use up.)  The image is cut from an oval nestie and mounted on a scalloped nestie. Since the wood grain had a bluish tinge, I added some unexpected blues to my fall card, including bakers twine.The die-cut "hello" (yet another goodie from that pre-made stash; it was a gift so I don't know who makes the die) is mounted on tiny bits of foam that I cut as small as possible (and I think managed to keep hidden pretty well).

The sketch is the current Sketch Saturday layout.

The card is for these challenges:
A Day For Daisies -- Add a touch of wood
Die-Cut Divas -- Fall
Double D Challenge -- Down on the farm
Sketch Saturday -- Sketch #428
The Ribbon Girl -- Make a card
Catch the Bug -- Anything goes
Word Art Wednesday #246 -- Anything goes

  2. Yes! Bring on fall. Ours is only about 2 weeks long though and never more than a few hours at a time. I'm ready for it though. This is a lovely card and very fallish.

  3. Ugh, I agree. I'm so ready for the cool temperatures of Fall (not so much Winter tho ... wouldn't it be great to just skip forward to Spring!!) Any-who ... love your card. What a great "hello" die and I love the wood DP. Please come back next week!
