My Favorite Fall Leaves


Second Post of the Day! Both for Freshly Made Sketches!

Since it was the first day of Fall on the Starbucks calendar that is, I went and got myself the first Pumpkin Latte of the season yesterday. YUM!!  When I got back, I decided why not make a fall birthday card using my all-time favorite leaf dies from SU. I did the watercolor smooshing technique for my fall leaves. The background is a script SU embossing folder that I put ink on with a sponge dauber after I embossed it.  I wanted more of a worn look. The victorian scalloped border and outline of the leaves were made with gold paper that doesn’t pick up well in the photo. The sentiment is from Gina K. The larger white rectangle also has the EF script on it but doesn’t show up in the photo either. I last decided to cover the stems of my leaves with the sentiment panel…it almost looks like a pocket.

Linking up again with Freshly Made Sketches! 

Here in Florida we are patiently waiting for Dorian to make the projected right turn.  I pray he spares all of the U.S.

Take care,  Nanc’
