Happy Fall

I finally had a chance to ink up one of my newest purchases from Papertrey Ink: "Wreath for All Seasons." I used the color combo from the Color Cue {8} Challenge and the sketch from the most recent Repeat Impressions Challenge.

It was really foggy today when I photographed this. The best "light" was outside and the wind kept knocking my card over. HA! I'm sure it was quite comical from a distance. I guess that's what I get for working right up against the deadline, huh?

Here's a couple of more photos

Hope you're having a splendid Fall season! Thanks for stopping by!

Gorgeous card, Lisa! :)
So perfect for Fall. And I love how you placed the sentiment with the button! Very nicely done! I'm so glad you joined the Repeat Impression sketch challenge! Love seeing your work, as always! :)

What a perfect use of the challenge colors! I adore this wreath, especially in these fall tones, and love the way your sentiment extends outside the card base. Oh, and my cards routinely fall over in the wind when I'm trying to take pictures! I'm sure the neighbors think I'm nutty. *wink*
