Fall is in the air

WHEW..what a day it has been.  I am so thankful I have my card making to fall back on as a stress reliever!  I tell ya, some days leave you scratching your head and asking "Really"??!! 
Ahh, enough about that.

Let's get to today's card.  I am pretty proud of this one.  Not that I am not proud of all my cards, but as a card maker there are ones that you are just so happy how they turned out, sometimes you want to keep them for yourself.  I took some patterned papers from the Amber Autumn matstack from DCVW, and placed one all over the card front, and the other I used my Fiskars edge punch "Treading Water", and put that at the bottom of the card.  I sponged at the bottom of the edges some Vintage Photo Distress Ink to make the pattern paper appear a little softer.  Then, I have some "Woolies" stickers from Basic Gray, and applied that beautiful sticker onto the card front as the "center piece" of the card.  Your eyes just goes right to that beautiful thing, and the colors are perfect fall colors.  I took some scrap orange cardstock I had and stamped my "thanks" greeting from a stamp set from TPC Studio in Fired Brick Distress Ink, and also sponged the edges with that same color as well to tie it all together.  I made this card Tues night. 11-16-10, and gave it to a friend/co worker today at work.  She loved it!  I take pride in my cards, and giving to those that appreciate them.  Makes this girl feel good inside.  Hope your day was a good one.  Till next time, be good to one another.
