It's Starting to Feel like Fall

It has cooled down quite a bit in my neck of the woods, and I felt like making a fall card today. The sketch I used is today’s challenge on SCS (SC246).

I pulled out my long-neglected pastels (aka chalks) to color the tree image and sprayed the panel with a fixative afterward. Creamy Caramel ink was sponged along the edges of every panel, and even on the twill tape for a more distressed look.

Thanks for stopping by!

    Gorgeous, clean and crisp.

    I never purchased lovely as a tree. Every time I see a card you made with this set I want to kick myself.
