It's Day Three of celebration week for the third birthday of Taylored Expressions! Today I'm featuring one of TE's wonderful A la Carte stamps, Fall. Autumn is such a beautiful season and Nancy McKinney has illustrated this darling image with its frisky squirrels, falling leaves, and nutty acorns. For this simple-to-create card, I stamped the image twice to pop out the cute critters and glittered it up with some stickles. Do you remember the Spooky Fence Border die? Well, change up the color and it's the perfect farmhouse fence! I added my old favorite Whimsy Tree die to suggest the vines of a pumpkin and now I'm all ready for those first leaves to fall!
