And the Leaves begin to Dance

Hello!  TodayI have my first fall card of the season to show you.  It is that time of year again. The days are shorter, the weather is cooler, and  my son goes back to college on Sunday.  The house will feel so different without him home.  Plus, I'll lose my little housekeeper.  He was such a blessing to me by helping with my daily chores all summer,  Oh well, such is life!

To make my card, I used leaf and acorn images from the DayDream Designs set 'Fall is in the Air'.  The sentiment is from 'Fall is in the Air Sentiments'.  I printed acorn and the leaf images out, colored them with Copic Markers, cut them out, and then 'bent' them a little.  I then popped them up on dimensionals.  The sentiment was printed on Kraft paper.  The sketch is from Tayored Expressions (TESC159) and the paper is DCWV 'Autumn/Fall Stack Collection'.  I found the leaf button on clearance at JoAnn's Fabrics and Crafts.
Have a great day! Amy
