Fall card by: Laura Vegas
Featured Collection: Alphabet Soup
I love fall colors, so this challenge was right up my alley. I choose a few favorite photos of me and my daughters, from a few years back, for this fall layout. I went through my stash of My Mind's Eye pattern papers, and choose papers my favorite fall colors. Brown, blue, yellow, orange, and cream. The burlap trim adds lots of texture to the layout, while the buttons add a nice homespun feel to it. I used the transparency photo frame, for a journaling block, and added my journaling strips to the inside. While I had all my papers and embellishments out, I whipped up a quick fall card, using the same elements as my layout.
Autumn Time by: Suzanne Sergi
Featured Collection: Mischievous
For this card, I also used the Mischievous line to create a card perfect for welcoming the fall. To soften the card I did add a bit of the shabby blue against the orange backdrop, and a white doily for an extra layer.. I really enjoyed playing with this sketch, and it helped this card come together quickly.

What a beautiful card Anam created using soft, FALL colors and a theme appropriate not only for fall, but any time of the year as well!
