Autumn at the General Store

     I love being on the DT at Createful Hearts and I have been playing in the Progressive Freebie challenge at The Outlawz since it began nearly two and a half years ago so imagine how pleased I was to see one of Mary's fab designs offered as the freebie this month.  Don't you just love this old time "General Store" with the dog lazing on the foot-worn porch?

     I colored with my ProMarkers and cut it with a rectangle die from QuicKutz.  I inked the edges to make it stand out from the background.  I embossed an orange scrap of CS using a "trees" folder from Darice.  The red background CS is distressed along the top edge.

     The butterfly was cut with a die from Spellbinders and the little pile of leaves was made with die cuts from Dies R Us.  I added a couple of pumpkins to the porch to complement the ones in the image and for those I used a die from Impression Obsession.   There was so much going on with the die cuts, the embossing, and the bright orange colors that I decided there just didn't need to be any other embellishment so no ribbons or flowers or sparkly gems on this one.

I first read this as "cozy autumn" and said to myself yes it is, so I'll stick with it, yes it is a cozy card.

Love that embossing folder (with fallen leaves at the bottom) and the general store image is perfect! Love how you've colored it - it does look old and reminds me of days gone by. Glad you played along with us at Words2CraftBy for our Autumn theme!
