Autumn Greetings

Hello everyone and thanks for stopping by!
It's still really warm here in southeast Alabama, and I 'm sure it will be for quite some time.  But, I am so in the mood for fall.  I have always loved the colors of fall - the oranges, yellows, browns and reds.  Fall is such a pretty time of year!  So, I've pulled out all of my pretty fall papers and embellishments, cranked up the ac, got my maple scented candles burning and tah...dah....instant fall!  I found a couple of fun challenges to enter and got my fall on....

* I started with a Kraft paper card base
* Printed papers are from the "Natural Botanical" paper stack by The Paper Studio
* Sunflower is from the Silhouette Online Store
* The ivory colored mat is embossed with the "Polka Dots" embossing folder
* Buttons and trim from my stash
* Sentiment - from a fall stamp set that is not marked, so I don't know who made these
* A bit of machine stitching

I am going to enter my card into the following challenges:

* Paper Playtime - "Polka Dots & A Sentiment"
* Tuesday Morning Sketches - "Sketch #160"

Well, I guess that's about it for me right now. Thanks for sharing my little bit of "fall".  I hope the real thing comes around soon!  Take care and I'll be seeing you soon.

Until next time,
