Celebrate Fall - FTTC #85

It is time for Flourishes Timeless Tuesday Challenge (FTTC85)! This week Dee Jackson is the challenge host. Dee is challenging us to create Celebration cards! Celebrate anyway you like! You can choose Baby, Birthday, Friendship, Holiday, or come up with your own reason to celebrate! We would love to see what you create!

Since September 23 is the official first day of Fall in the Northern hemisphere, I can think of nothing better to celebrate today!! It's still pretty warm during the day here in South Central Virginia, but the nights are getting cooler and there's just that fall feel in the air. I spent last weekend putting out my Fall decorations--just looking at them makes me happy :)

For my card I'm using the Falling Leaves set. I stamped a selection of the leaf images on Kraft paper with Versamark and heat embossed with Copper Detail embossing powder. Then I popped it up on foam tape on a base card of Kraft with a layer of Chocolate Chip. The sentiment is also from the set and was stamped on Classic Ivory Card Stock with Memento Rich Cocoa ink, cut/embossed with a Deckle Edge Oval Nestabilities die. Before popping it up on Pop Dots I sponged a little Antique Linen Distress ink around the edges. I wanted to keep this CAS to show off those gorgeous leaves, so I kept the embellishments low key--ribbon and a twine tied button. I did add the double acorn image, which was colored with Copic markers and cut out, to the sentiment piece.

Now, be sure to go see what my team mates are celebrating today! Thanks for stopping by!
