Paper Sweeties September 2015 Inspiration Challenge #35

Tuesday, September 1, 2015

This summer just flew by! While summer is my favorite season, fall takes a close second place, if for no other reason than I love the colors! Even though I live in North Georgia, and am privileged to see the leaves change color every year, just by looking out my window, the beauty of it still blows me away.

For Paper Sweeties' September Inspiration Challenge, I used warmer versions of the red, yellow, and green color palette to give me my first autumn card of the year.
I used a Viva la Verve sketch for the card design, and these Paper Sweeties stamps and Sweet Cuts die sets:

The beautiful sparkly gold flower-shaped sequins are from Paper Sweeties, too!
I edge-punched scraps for the inside of the card, and colored the cute heart divider stamp with Copics.

I just love the inspiration photo for this challenge! And, my teamies have some seriously cute cards to inspire you:

Thanks for stopping by, and have a wonderful week!

What a beautiful fall card. I so miss the colors of fall that I used to see when I lived in Michigan. Now that I live in Florida I miss seeing the leaves changing color. Not enough to move back north, mind you! I enjoy palm trees, too.
