Patterns for Fall

     Among the wonderful new digi sets which were released at Doodle Pantry this month is one called "Fall Patterns" and I'm crazy about everything in it -- the digi stamps, the papers (fantastic!), and even the sentiments.  If I could do nothing for the rest of the month but use this set to make cards, I would.  Of course, I do have other commitments to meet.  :-D  Here's the first one I've done and there are two more I've completed but they may not make it to a post right away.

I used the sketch from Technostampers.


       With the exception of the brads and the sentiment, everything on the card is from the Fall Patterns set.  (See below.)  I printed two of the image, fussy cut the acorn and popped it up from the pumpkin for some dimension.

     I matted the papers and sentiment with dark brown and used a kraft card base.  The green dp has been run through my "Linen Texture" embossing folder.  The three brads in each corner are from my stash, as is the jute cord.  Both of those are from my embellie stash and I've had them for more than 2 years.  It's not that I haven't used any of those things during that  time; it's just that I purchased a lot of them when I bought them so there are still a lot of those in my stash.  :-D
