Autumn



Hello, happy Hump Day!  Has cooled quite a bit here and rainy the past two days.  Nights have cooled down considerably, blanket weather!!!

So, the autumn bug has hit me and I put some decorations out.  Today's card is a reflection of that.
I made the card for the Midnight Madness Sketch Challenge (MMSC#74)  The papers are from the K & Company, Tim Coffey, Tuscan Sunflowers paper stack.  The sunflowers are from Priscillastyles store.  I used raffia across the top of the card.  The swirl border punch is by EK Sucess.  The pumpkins border punch is Martha Stewart.  Gold colored Kaiser rhinestones were used.  I sprayed the sunflowers with Sheer Shimmer. I used Papier clear on the centers of the sunflowers and added a little perfect pearls gold to the centers.  The sentiment is computer generated.

I'm also entering this card at Stamp Something, the challenge this week is a card that celebrates something.  This card celebrates  Autumn.

Thanks so much for stopping by.  Have a great rest of the day.  Until later...................

Oh, how true is that sentiment! We traveled from Mo. to Co. last weekend to see DS. Going through Ks, there was field after field of 'bowing' sunflowers. Beautiful card, my friend!
