Fall Wreath Thanks

A fall thank you card.  I pick up this free digital image from Designed 2 Delight.  I love all the fall leaves and used my markers to color in all the wonderful colors of fall.  I can't wait to smell the cool, crisp air of fall.  I used Mercy's sketch to design my card.  I used paper from the Amber Autumn Card Stack by DCWV and added some hand stitching on the left side of the strips of paper with embroidery floss.  The main image is popped up with foam dots and I added a little tag for my sentiment from Studio G.  Just a little button, which started out white and I colored it red with my marker to match finishes off this fall card.

This card will be submitted for the following challenges:
Tuesday Throwdown 16 - celebrate fall
Digital Tuesday - dots and stripes
Your Next Stamp - Anything Goes
Stars and Stamps - Fall Thank You card
Fab 'n' Funky - What'eva'
Delightful Inspirations - use provided image
Southern Girls Challenges - Anything Goes
Paper Play - Autumn


Thanks for stopping by!
