My first card for fall

When I saw the sketch at Freshly Made Sketches, I immediately wanted to play because I knew I could use some washi tape for the strips on it.

I spied this floral Doodlebug one, thought of fall colors, and off I went.


supplies: kraft cardstock, Doodlebug washi tapes, Lawn Fawn Stitched Leaves dies, Clearly Besotted Autumn Flowers sentiment, Cuttlebug D'vine Swirls embossing folder.

Fall is my favorite season, and I've seen a few autumn cards starting to pop up already........and here the temperatures have modulated already to a bit cool for July.....wonder what Mother Nature has in store for us in the coming months?

Thanks for stopping by today......enjoy the rest of your weekend!

This is so sweet and really spot on for me with the unusual Sept. like temps that have been popping up!

Terrific Fall card, Lin! I should have thought to use Washi tape--now I'll have to use the sketch for another card. Thanks for the inspiration!

Love seeing these colors at this time of year! Those stitched leaf dies are some of my faves and I love how you've used them with the washi. Thanks for joining us at Freshly Made Sketches!

I know how much you love fall, Lin and I love it too! But, I am so not ready to give up summer; even though it feels very fall-ish today!!!!

Love that pretty washi tape and the leaves are just the right autumn shades. Great card.

Love your colors, Lin and it won't be long before the coolness of autumn approaches - Fall has become my favorite time of year :-) Loving your washi tape!

The embossed background makes one think of the leaves swirling around. Perfect. The washi tapes are a perfect addition to this card!
