My card today was inspired by this fantastic photo I snapped a couple of weeks ago. I was at a red light, and I quickly grabbed my phone and shoved it out the window and was able to capture this...
Isn't this gorgeous??? I'm awestruck everytime I look at it. As much as I wish that winter around here was shorter, I wish fall in all its splendor was longer. Sigh. This is already just a memory because the trees are now almost bare.
Oh well, it served as great inspiration because here is my card. I used the tree image from the set Funky Forest by Lindsay's Stamp Stuff.
I used a combination of paper piecing and Copics to color it and one of my favorite embossing folders for the background that has a bunch of random autumnal words. I hand stamped the sentiment and layered it up with some circle punches. I thought that, and the round buttons coordinated well with that image.
Here is a look at the entire set:
Well, that's it for me today :) I hope you will take time to see what Lindsay and the rest of the team has made
