Happy Fall...

It's hard to believe that November is already half-over. The colors here in NYC have turned and it's gorgeous in Central Park. I thought I would celebrate Fall with a card using this month's {SOTM} from Clear & Simple Stamps, Happy Fall. To give my leaf a bit of autumn crackle, I crunched up the cardstock a bit before stamping. Before we know it, all those lovely leaves will have dropped and winter will be here. Where DOES the year go?

  2. Stamp sentiment. Apply liquid dimensionals.
  3. Trim patterned paper; mat. Tie ribbon. Adhere with foam tape.
  4. Crunch cardstock. Stamp leaf. Fussy cut and adhere with foam tape.

Simple and nice. Regina, i really wonder how you tie your ribbon so neat? I just couldn't. I also admire how you could actually made the trails with liquid pearls...they seems so "uniform" to me. :D (Coz i couldn't do it! each pearl has diff shapes!)
