The Colors Of Autumn!


Today I made a card using the beautiful colors of Autumn and a digital image from Art By Miran.  I won this image when I entered the Artbymiran Facebook challenge.  She’s called “Autumns Memoirs”.  The image was colored with Copics and layered on card stock.  I used the Martha Stewart branch punch to make the side leaf panel and the small flower punch for the blossoms and then added liquid pearls in the centers.  I didn’t want to add ‘summer’ flowers because this card is all about autumn and its beauty.  For the corners I used Cuttlebug dies.  When it was all done I thought it would make a great card for Thanksgiving.  Fall (Autumn) is my favourite season because of the colors and because it’s not super hot.  I hate the heat and humidity!   I hope my card inspires you to go out and enjoy the wonderful beauty of the fall!
