Fall Bliss ...

November in New York is when the leaves are almost all gone and we are settling in for a long winter. Soon, the leaves on the ground will be covered in snow, and all the beautiful colors of autumn will be a memory. Fall is my favorite season with the balmy weather, bright colors and time of harvest! I've created this card with these thoughts in mind! ~Enjoy~!

My leaves are from Spellbinders® Paper Arts Fall Foliage dies, and are cut from ivory cardstock, then painted with various mixtures of Creative Inspirations Paints including: Burnt Clay, Pumpkin, Raw Sienna, Rustic Red, Emerald, Green Olive and Sunshine. Once dry, I used the cracked glass technique, then rubbed it with Olive Grove ink to highlight the cracks. I layered them on an M-Bossabilities Tweets and Twigs embossed background, attached a twine bow, tiny twigs and a fall sentiment from JustRite Papercraft to finish the card.
