Fall Secret Sister Swap


Today's card is for my November secret sister swap.  Our theme was Fall and I think I nailed it!

I chose to ink up Swiss Pixie Rainy Day Birgitta.  She seemed like the perfect image for my card.  I added some die cuts in both paper and burlap to give it more of a rustic feel.  I found the papers in my stash and thought the colors were also a perfect match for Fall.   The dark green was something I wanted to add for a bit of contrast.

Dies used;
Spellbinders, Label Four | CC Cutters: Acorn set & mushroom border | Taylored Expressions: Mini leaves | La-La Land Crafts: Heart banner & Lattice doily border | MFT: Dienamics High Rise Alphabets.

For the inside of the card I added some of the autumn paper and left over mushrooms, acorn and leaf die cuts to the bottom.  I left the sentiment off, thinking my swap partner could add whatever she wanted to add.  Since I hardly add anything to the inside but a stamped or computer generated sentiment it was a lot of fun to add something more.

I'm going to include some other crafty goodies for my swap partner, which I hope she'll be able to use for any upcoming projects.  If any of you would like to participate in this resurrected monthly Secret Sister Swap please leave a message in the comments section with your email address and I'll pass it on to our coordinator.  Thanks for stopping by.  Have a great day!!

Hi Leanne, I think your really did a fantastic job on your 'Fall' card. She is just perfect for it and I love the burlap on your card. What a great touch to the whole card. I hope you are doing well. I miss talking to everyone, so I am trying to get back to putting up blog posts and blog hopping to all the wonderful people I have gotten to be friends with along the way. Hugs Lisa G

This is a great fall card. Your color choices make it very autumnal. My favorite part is what you did with the burlap. Somehow the fall season conjures up thoughts of a rustic look maybe because of the Pilgrims...LOL!

Yup, you sure did nail it. With all the rain that comes in autumn you couldn't have chosen a better image and the colours are wonderful too. Perfect autumn card.
Hugs! xx
