It's beginning to feel a lot like autumn...

It's the end of August, and it already feels like mid-October with the cool temps, crisp air, and bright sunshine. But boy, oh boy, is it ever cold this morning! :) This card was created last night, but I just wanted to chillax after creating it. Be sure to check out the challenges at Sweet Sketch Wednesday for the layout and colors, Cinema Saturday is now showing a challenge to incorporate the color brown into your work, and finally Paperlicious #20 tossed out a creative challenge to stamp a light colored background then stamp a darker sentiment over the light background. Doesn't this card just shout crisp autumn days???????????? Thanks for sticking with me this week, I hope to be a little more creative in the coming weeks, in fact, I woke up with an idea for a winter/holiday card.
