Fall Card!

I think that fall is the most beautiful time of the year! And I am lucky enough to live in a place where the colors are spectacular. And as I look out my window in my craft area, and see the changing leaves; I can't help but to want to put together projects that reflect what I see.
 
My Scrap Chick has a file called Fall Card and it is perfect for my mood!
 
 
I also used the MSC file called Halloween Treat Boxes for the pumpkin.
 
I cut and inked all the pieces that came with the Fall Card file. I then stamped my sentiment onto the Vintage Cream Cardstock by Papertrey Ink using a sentiment from My Craft Spot's Chalkboard Sentiments Fall stamp set. As I began to place the pieces, I decided to cut a mat for the sentiment piece to add one more layer of color. Because the sentiment mentions pumpkins, I also decided to reduce the size of the pumpkin from the treat box set and place it on the bottom corner of the card. The pumpkin and the leaves were all attached with pop dots. It was a simple card to put together, but it speaks about fall to me. Best thing is that any sentiment could be stamped on the inside making it useful for fall birthdays, Thinking of You cards, Thank You cards, and so many more.
