Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge - Lovely Leaves Reminder

IMG_6246


After a far too short summer, fall is in the air. All the signs have been there in the past month. The leaves changing colour in my geranium planter even though the flowers continue to bloom, grass wet with dew in the morning on my bare feet walking out to the bird feeder, air conditioning on, air conditioning off and changing three times a day. Friday we had the hottest temperature we had all summer long, then a massive thunderstorm last night followed by a cool autumn breeze today. My head is spinning.

What is happening in your part of the world?

There is still time to play at the Curtain Call Inspiration Challenge. The Lovely Leaves challenge is open until September 10th at 8:00 AM CDT.  I made another card inspired by Lovely Leaves.  I was happy to pull out my Basic Grey Persimmon patterned papers once again and even more happy to find the the new Stampin' Up Happy Honey cardstock and ink is a great match to the papers.

I used the Reverse Confetti September Sketch For You To Try for my card.

Just love your card, Tracey - wonderfully different colors for a fall card!

Love your card Tracey. Slowing making my way into the fall color palette versus summer/spring. I think we are following the same weather pattern as you. Friday the humidity was awful as well as the heat. Today it is sunny but breezy and a perfect low 70s.
