Autumn is here!


This card is made for my Tuesday post at Cili in Papers this week and it is also for the Fall cards challenge at Hero Arts. I'm recycling the twig with mini pine cones from a Christmas wreath for Yvonne Yam's and Lynn Miller's fun recycling challenge at Do more with less.
I will also enter it for the simple sentiments challenge at Wee memories  the fall card challenge at  Stamp with fun.
I used the leaf stamp from Layered Flowers and I embossed the Timely Bird (Good timing with the september date stamp too (-:) with Ranger's black embossing powder onto patterned paper. The sentiment is from "Wish you were here".



Have a wonderful fall tuesday! Hugs, Karin

I can't stop looking at your card, it's so beautiful! What a great idea to use those mini pinecones! We have a bunch of those in our yard, but never thought to use them on a card.
