Autumn's Coming!

Here's my card for Oozak#5 challenge to make an Autumn-themed card. Cocoa mouse to the rescue! I used some coordinating Autumn-themed papers from a Tim Coffey paper pad, paper piecing Cocoa's apple and adding a strip of floral dsp to the bottom. The tiny leaf stamps were done with an autumn stamp set (no name) and I did them with various shades of autumn colors. The image and sentiment are by SNSS while the solid ribbon is from DCWV. I added a piece of sheer ribbon to the sentiment panel, and some spica glitter pen accents to the golden leaf on the apple. Happy Fall Y'all! I know that might be a tad bit early, but I love fall - it's my favorite time of the year.

Here's wishing you a fabulous weekend!

Wow! That is beautiful paper, Carol. Love the paper pieced apple and those little leaves you stamped. Too cute!
Gosh, it really has felt like Fall here this weekend, especially Sat. a.m. and this a.m.
I love Fall, but summer is my favorite and I'll hate to see it go, even with the high temps we've had.
