Autumn Memories.... A Fall Card

Autumn is right around the corner...it will be here before we know it...pumpkins...corn stalks...mums...scarecrows...my favorite time of year! And one of my favorite seasons to make cards for, besides Christmas. So why not get a jump start! All the new Fall themed products that has just been released are so beautiful. I couldn't wait to use them!

Here is a card I made using paper and a postcard from Pink Paislee's new lines, the Twilight and Amber Road Collections. And the Autumn Memories stamp is also from their new line of stamps. What beautiful collections...but what else would you expect from Pink Paislee! The pumpkins are made out of white felt. I just trimmed them out with pinking shears and then added some Marigold Shimmerz and then some Spiced Cider Blingz around the edges. I then added some more brown felt, green ribbon as the leaves, a button and some more hemp cord. Hope you like it?!!

I hope you all have a wonderful weekend! I usually don't do posts on the weekends, but I will have something for you tomorrow. Shimmerz and Triple the Sketch have teamed up this weekend for some fun shimmery layouts with their awesome sketch! So I will have the card I made here and on the TTS blog! Oh, and Monday my blog candy winner will be chosen! So good luck! See you tomorrow!

Hugs...
