It’s the First Day of Fall

Well, here it is — the first day of Fall — and the weatherman says it will get up to 97 degrees here today.  Oh, well.  It will start to feel like Fall before too long.

Nonetheless, I was inspired to make a Fall card today.  I was inspired by the challenge over at CAS-usual Fridays , which is to create a clean and simple project inspired by Autumn and by the challenge over at the Friday Mashup.

So I pulled out a beautiful stamp set that I haven’t used since last Fall, French Foliage, and got busy.  The leaves in this set are gorgeous, and just beg to be used with different techniques.  I took a sponge dauber and applied different colors to each stamp. 

This was a fun card to make.  Enjoy your weekend, and thanks for stopping by!
