An Autumn Hello

Hi, thanks for stopping in.  Today I have made an Autumn Hello card.  I made it following a sketch and also this week at Crafty Creations our challenge is to make something with leaves/Autumn colors.  Jamie is our hostess this week and she got Whiff of Joy stamps to be our sponsor.  So come over to Crafty Creations, you could win  a prize from our sponsor.


This card is kind of simple but I think it really reflects the Fall.  The background paper I printed and cut using my Imagine and the Enjoy the Seasons cartridge.  I also printed and cut all the other pieces also, like the yellow strip and center cream colored piece where the sentiment is stamped.  What I like about printing my paper on the Imagine is !).  You can get the exact color to match your other papers and 2) I printed this on Cryogen White which has a mica sparkle that shows through the printing.
The large leave is a button and all the others are brads.  Pretty simple huh?

Glad you stopped by and be sure and join in the challenge at Crafty Creations.

So Pretty! You know? I just had to have that cart. I finally ordered it and have had it about a month. It's registered and points submitted... and that's it. I haven't used it once. Isn't that terrible?
