Changing Leaves

The leaves are just starting to change here...and there is a definate chill in the air. My chickens normally sleep outside on a little roost but lately they have been sleeping inside their little house - it may have to do with them molting but I knew fall was here when I saw that.

The Tuesday Trigger over at Moxie Fab World is Autumn Woods...the colors really inspired me and I tried to incorporate lots of texture in my card even though I stayed away from little squares!



This little card uses lots of goodies from a•muse studio. I used some of my new dies for the pinking edge border and the cardboard frame, the button, a little slip of gingham paper and their cardstock as well. I've been eager to try scoring the cardstock which allows the white to show through, especially when you touch it lightly with a sanding block. I love too how well the inks blend on the bold portions of the stamps - I'll be sharing a tutorial for this next week.



I'm embracing fall before I have to completely focus on Christmas!

PS. This stamp set, Fresh Foliage, is on sale right now for 10% off...

Love the colors! I just love fall! Unfortunately, there really isn't fall tree changing here in Texas...it's already brown by the time we make it to fall! Great card, Chris!
