From Summer to Autumn...
It is only a few weeks away until the official end of summer and beginning of autumn…my favorite season of the year. The weather begins to be a bit cooler which lends to more enjoyable time outdoors with family and friends and the greens of summer turn into a cornucopia of various shades of reds, yellows, browns, and oranges. It is a beautiful time of year.
The autumn time is full of memorable moments for me: my anniversary with a fantastic husband, birthdays, traditions, and so many more exciting dates which help me look forward to this time of year each year.
This card is the first “autumn” inspired card I have made this year; I completed it for three different challenges: Charisma Cardz, Stamping 411, and Our Creative Corner:
Charisma Cardz: Patchwork; this is the checkerboard pattern I created on the horizontal band across the card.
Stamping 411: Sketch; the layout of this card is inspired by this sketch challenge.
Our Creative Corner: Fall/Autumn; this was the main inspiration of the card. I felt the colors showed the greens of summer, but also the transition into the more earthy colors of autumn.
Recipe: Sketch an Event stamp set (image), More Mustard card stock, brown, light green, dark green, and leaf patterned paper, hemp twine, dimensional spots, and my CraftROBO.
