Ushering in the Season...FALL


We have a new challenge over at Beary Scrap and you're going to love it....HAPPY FALL Y'ALL!  I adore the season of fall, it's my favorite.  To me it's like everything is getting ready to go to sleep for the winter.  The colors are so deep and rich and hearty...love, love, love.  Can't you just smell the crisp air, the apples baking in the oven with a sprinkle of sugar and see the leaves starting to fall to the ground.  How could that not give you warm fuzzies all over. 

I used the new Authentique 6 x 6 paper pads (Glowing and Blissful) for this card.  I inked it up with a bit of distress ink to give a bit more aged look and to blend with the Fall colors I was reaching for.  That's the nice thing about distress ink...if your paper isn't quite what you want it to be in color or tone...ink that thing up.

This card also qualifies for the following challenges:

Beautiful card! I love that pattern paper so pretty. Fall is my favorite time of year, the smells, the cool air, changing of the leaves. Great time of year.

This is a really great card, lots of interesting elements on it. I love rescue remedies and you used that diecut so perfectly on this sketch card. You did such a good job with all the edge distressing.
