autumn. . . .

is really the prettiest season, isn't it?  Even though I am not excited to welcome the long winter months, I do love these beautiful fall days.  Here is a card I made for a couple of challenges:



The stamps are from Flourishes.  I used Prismacolor pencils to color the images and added some black and white twine.  The Less is More challenge is to use twine for a CAS card.  I am also entering this card in the City Crafter challenge which calls for pumpkins on the card.

Thanks for visiting my blog and for all of your sweet comments.

I haven't used my Prismas in so long - they probably feel neglected. Thanks for the reminder - I love the look you've created. Beautiful scene and perfect use of twine! I'm with you - even tho we have it easy, I am not happy about winter being on its way. Tropical gal, here!
