Hello Autumn!!

Here in Michigan we are approaching my favorite season, Autumn.  The air will soon be crisp and cool not so 'Gatsby' hot**. In the late summertime I long for school to start and get some routine back, pro football to start (go Bills!), and start cooking good ole' fashioned comfort food. Right now I am in a holding pattern but the clouds are starting change and all the 'back to school' stuff is out in stores. It is starting to change and I can hardly wait..

yada, yada, yada!! Here is my card for today full of Autumn's delights. Enjoy!

A simple 'hi' is what she might say at the pumpkin patch
Layers of colorful leaves make for a beautiful backdrop for our girl.

How to:
  1. Cut and scored white CS to 4.5" x 6". Set aside.
  2. Finding my image on the computer and changed her eyes to a very deep green and printed two images out.
  3. Cut my print slightly smaller then the card base.
  4. Stamped the leaf background using dark pinks, green, yellow, and rust.
  5. Sponged the panel with Distress Ink using 'broken china' and 'chipped sapphire' around the top perimeter of the panel.
  6. Colored the image of the girl as shown using PrismaColor pencils.
  7. Shaded and drew an outline of the girl to make the image pop just a bit more.
  8. Punched the bottom of the panel.
  9. Stamped sentiment then die-cut using a circle stitch die. Set aside
  10. Die-cut flourishes for the pumpkin patch and attached it to the colored panel.
  11. Stamped three pumpkin image and colored then shaded using PrismaColor pencils.
  12. Fussy cut the pumpkins and added them with the flourishes then 
  13. Attached the sentiment with dimensional adhesive. 
  14. Adhered the colored to a maroon panel and the whole design on the card base.
That's a wrap for me!! I am going to bed and get my beauty sleep or just sleep, whatever. Thank you so much for stopping by and sharing your day with me.. Please if you'd like to leave a comment that would be great!! It makes my day a bit brighter.. Until next time take care!

All the best,

**You all know the scene when Daisy, Gatsby, and Tom are at the hotel room in NYC and it is so stifling hot they can hardly stand it, yes, Gatsby hot.
