Happy Saturday, Happy Fall Y'all!

I love fall, I just wish the weather here would decide it's time for fall! Since the weather doesn't want to seem to cooperate, I just make cards that remind me of the season I hold so dear! When this set appeared in last year's Holiday Mini catalog, I had to have it. I loved the images and they are so perfect for watercoloring: not to big, not to small, not so intricate that you want to strangle the artist who drew it by the time you are done! For this card, I chose to use the Juntos Designer Series paper that can only be found in the Spanish language supplement of the Stampin' Up! catalog. As soon as I saw the paper in that catalog I knew it would be perfect for fall cards...don't you agree? All products from Stampin' Up! The base of the card is Mellow Moss but it's really showing up grayish in the photograph!
Stamp sets: Autumn Havest, Wonderful Words
Paper: Mellow Moss, Chocolate Chip, Always Artichoke, Shimmer White, Juntos DSP
Ink: Basic Brown, Summer Sun, Really Rust, More Mustard, Close to Cocoa, Chocolate Chip, Always Artichoke
Accessories: Scallop circle for Big Shot, Colzzule Circle cutter, crafter's tool kit, Aquapainter, Really Rust maker, More Mustard marker, Dimensionals, Wide Chocolate grosgrain ribbon, More Mustard grograin, Always Artichoke grosgrain
Have a great rest of the weekend everyone!
