It's not Autumn but.....

Hello everyone: Well, like the title says, I know it's not Autumn yet but, I just realized I don't have one single Fall/Autumn or Thanksgiving card made, probably you guys don't have any either so, trying to get a jump on my Fall/Autumn card making, here is this card that I made with the Match the Sketch fabulous sketch.

I love Autumn, to me, it's the most gorgeous Season of the year, the colors are always magnificent, such deep, rich shades of burgundy, gold, orange, rust, green.  I can't wait for this fabulous show Mother Nature gifts us with every year.
This image is a beloved one from a retired Flourishes set called A Season of Thanks, this is one of the images on this set. I stamped it onto Canson water color paper with Stazon Jet Black ink and colored it with SU markers and the aqua painter, the die cut leaves and acorns are fro Our Daily Bread and so is the sentiment, the pattern paper is from Lili of the Valley.
Here is a picture of the finished inside of my card.


This sentiment is also from the ODB set, I love it.
Here is the sketch that inspired my card, I just turned it vertically.

Thank you for stopping by, until next time, happy stamping.
Hugs from Maria.

    1. Thank you Patti, how wonderful that your neighbors decorate like this, up here no one really does it for Autumn, I guess everybody thinks Mother Nature does the decorating for us. I do decorate inside though.

      Glad you liked this card, I was thinking that the Holidays are fast approaching so I better get cracking with my Halloween and Thanksgiving cards.
