"Fall" in Love

     How's this for a perfect, fall wedding, bridal shower card?  The shower decorations are all being done in fall colors.  The image is from The East Wind, where their current FB challenge has a theme of "Lovin' the Animals."


My colors were inspired by Our Crafty Corner.


     The image is colored with ProMarkers, then die cut with a die from Spellbinders.  I took a few of the leaves which were bits that dropped out of the die cut, colored them with ProMarkers, and used them for corner embellies.  The background CS (all from my stash) is hand-torn and layered onto the card front.  Each piece was run through my "Linen" folder before tearing.  The bow is made from hem tape lace and I 'dyed' it with ProMarker to get the color I wanted.

     Hey, it's Wednesday and officially Autumn here in the Northern Hemisphere!  Only two more days 'til the weekend and our weather is supposed to cool down for a day or so, then get hot again on Friday and Saturday.  I keep hoping for the cool breath of fall but I'm beginning to lose faith in the weather predictors.  :-D  Happy Stamping.  NanaConnie
