Happy Fall Y'all

Hello Y'all!!

For today I would like to share a card for the Make My Monday challenge blog. This weeks challenge is all about Autumn Colors! My favorite color combinations come from this spectacular season. Here is my card for tonight; enjoy!

All those beautiful colors!
The abstract tree seems to be ideal for Autumn.
Come on over and link up with us.
We are all looking forward to see what you create!
This card came from this image. I am not going to say it was easy-peasy but with a little patience it all worked out. So how did I do it? Well first I printed the tree image on computer paper then took a pencil and scribbled all over the back of the tree printout (You can also use carbon paper). Then traced the branches I wanted on my CS. Then using my craft knife I carefully cut out the negative space between the branches. I selected my colored papers and pieced them on the back of the branch CS. Time consuming; Yes! Worth it? Definitely! The papers I picked out were selected because of their color and texture. They work together to form a wonderful Autumn tree! So as the sentiment says 'Happy Fall Y'all!'

I hope this card will inspire you to hop on over to Make My Monday and link up so we can see your ideas about Autumn Color.
