Happy Fall Y'all!

Good morning, everyone! Guess what?! It's that time again... The Inky Impressions challenge this week is IIC #130 - Fall/Autumn, so that means we want to see your fall/autumn projects! Come play with us! It's that time of year... my favorite time of year... when the weather starts cooling off and the air gets crisp, and that general 'warm and fuzzy' feeling envelops us! Love it!

I used "Scarecrow Fun" which was one of last month's new releases at Inky Impressions. What a fun image to play with! I dug around in 'that drawer' and found another 6x6 paper pad that I forgot I had. I like to stack these small paper pads flat rather than store them like tilted books (so they don't warp) and the drawer is deep, so unfortunately I forget about what gets shuffled to the bottom! Needless to say, I was happy finding this pad because the papers are perfect! ;)

OMG - what cuties! The colors in the paper were incorporated into the image, and I used a falling leaf brad, some gorgeous orange ribbon and a little bit of bling. ;)

The falling leaves were carried to the inside to compliment the computer-generated sentiment. 

I'd love to enter this card into the following challenges:

  • Gina K Designs Pure Luxury ivory, chocolate and sweet mango cardstock
  • October Afternoon Campfire 6x6 paper pad
  • Inky Impressions Scarecrow Fun digital image
  • Copics: 33/37/51, B91/95, R20/27, YG17, Y15/17/21, YR04, G12/20/24, BG000
