Fall is Coming....Fall is Coming!

One of my favorite times of the year is Fall--you know--the days that are not too warm and not too cool with the smell of falling leaves in the air.  We had just a sniff of Fall last week--of course the weather is back up in the 80's now, but it made me anxious for its true arrival.

I've been trying to stamp more regularly now that the school season is in full swing and to meet one of my goals (see my post from a few weeks ago) I'm participating in a sketch site....and I may have already blown it, by not being clean and simple enough (I sort of read that part after I created the card).  Ha!  Anyway here's my card for this sketch:

I used the age old "Lovely as a Tree" stamp set which continues to be a classic year in and year out!  I added some fall leaves to my trees with my blendabilities.  My banner is decorated with leaves from the Fun Fall framelits.  I used sahara sand, tangerine tango and crushed curry--pulling those colors from the Color Me Autumn designer series paper from the holiday catalog.  The sentiment is from the stamp set "For All Things."  Well-it may not be clean and simple, but I did follow the sketch....sort of....and I do like the card.  =-)
