I ♥ Fall

cover


Popping in this morning with my first fall card of the year.
I love summertime, and I love the heat, but no matter what whenever the cool crisp air of fall arrives I realize that I love fall just as much.

With the arrival of my new Lawn Fawn goodies last week I was anxious to break out the new Stitched Leaves Lawn Cuts and my Distress Inks. I used a bit of patterned paper and a sentiment both from from Into the Woods and placed everything on a Fine Linen card base.

I am also submitting this card to the Simon Says Wednesday Challenge.  
This week's challenge is embossing.
