Autumn Birthday


Here's a little birthday card made with a sponged background and a House Mouse having fun with all the colorful leaves of autumn. I used an EK border punch to get all the tiny leaves that have fallen to the ground and added a strip of rust-colored ribbon diagonally. The panels were cut with stitched rectangle dies and I added one golden leaf brad for the final accent. The sentiment is from SNSS.

I'm sharing this with the HMFMC#226 which has a theme of "Autumn."

Thanks for stopping by, and make it a great day.

The leaf looks lovely with the autumn multicolor look and the sweet confetti you got from your punch adds some punch to your card. Those house mouse images are so cute and you use them so well.

ADORABLE! Your autumn card is just the cutest, Carol! Love the little leaves at the bottom and your beautifully colored image! I am SO ready for Fall and the leaves to start falling....just not winter! TFS and hope you had a great day! :)

I'd LOVE to see a falling leaf this pretty - but then again, I'd just like to see any leaf falling right now. Much too hot (heat index of 105) right now but we're hoping for cooler weather soon. I love this card for fall! Just beautiful and gorgeous coloring too.
