In our part of SE Michigan, leaves are just starting to change into that beautiful range of colors.It takes a number of weeks but slowly all the leaves on trees in our neighborhood start to turn... that is except for the older big tree in our backyard. It is a bit different and the leaves fall at their own pace...usually after all the neighbors have raked and bagged up their own leaves. The leaves from our tree love to drift to visit neighbors up and down our block.... It's only for a short time and then poof they are gone for another year.
This card reflects this special time of the year. The card was scored and then folded using the Scor-pal and opens all the way thus allowing for three spots for messages.The stamp is a new one from my LSS. The image was punched after coloring and glued onto the contrasting scalloped edge circle and accented with Stickles . The back message area was cut from a tissue box opening discard, traced and used to create a accent. Two flowers were used along with one created by the torn paper method,crinkled up and the fastened with a brad.
Cardstock:Gold,Gingerbread, Kraft-from the scrapbox
