Happy autumn Monday to you! You can tell it's "officially fall" around here because the oak tree out front has finally started dropping leaves all over the front lawn. Sure do love that we have that beautiful big old tree in the front yard, but it sure does make a mess for a few weeks every year! :)

Today's card again has an autumn color scheme, and I'm not sure if it will be a "thank you" card, or a "thanksgiving" card...either way it has the colors of the season set against stark white and kraft tan...

Each cardstock layer has been attached using foam tape to add's a bit easier to see from the side view...

The larger flowers are handmade using flat Prima flowers, shaping them with the round end of an embossing tool, then layering them on top of each other. I couldn't resist adding a nice bunch of stamens to the largest orange flower just for fun...

The large orange leaf came off a larger stem of leaves from the craft store...a little gold glitter was added in the spirit of the fall season..

I found a stem of seed pods left from a couple projects from last year...just the right colors for today's card...

Embossing folder:   Sizzix/Tim Holtz Texture Fades/Bricked & Woodgrain
