Freestyle Fridays - Changing Seasons

Fall has arrived and in full force.  The trees are changing colors with rapid speed.  Some have no leaves left, others are hanging on with all they've got. And the geese, oh my, they are V-ing south.  "Come back" I tell them but they don't listen.  The only thing that gives me comfort at this time of year is the vibrancy of the burgundies, yellows and oranges which inspired this card. 

I started with a piece of 10 x 5 Baja Breeze and scored it half.  Went searching for some fall designer paper and found several unopened packages of Autumn Vine.  Well, I better make use of this!  So I cut a piece to make a layer for the front.  Before I adhered it I added a punch out of a fence (wish it was bigger) made with Baja Breeze. I cheated and used some purchased flowers some time ago.  The sentiment was stamped with Timber Brown Staz-On from the stamp set Word Play and cut using a die cut.  Dimensionals were used to place it on an angle.

Keeping fingers crossed that our fall will last longer than our summer!

********REGINA'S MISSION********

For this week Regina your mission is to complete a project with autumn designer paper of your choice.  The catch, include a fence, either machine cut or designed with your very talented hands. 

See Ya Next Week!

Your Fall card is beautiful, Julie! I love Fall, but sometimes it feels like there's an evacuation that you don't know about when the leaves can't get away fast enough and the birds are leaving town. Ha! I look forward to completing next week's mission!

Hi Julie! I love your card and the DSP is perfect. I also think that the little fence at the bottom really adds the finishing touch. You never disappoint us .... you always create such lovely cards...
