Fall is in the air!



Today I'm sharing a creation for
Speedy the Cat's Challenge. The only requirement was to use a punch. My leaves were done with an EK Success punch, Wal-Mart card stock, sponged tissue paper and scor-tape.
I used this adorable image from Little Birds with Big Mouths.
I picked both my mat and my two different dps from my stash. My base is GKD Fresh Asparagus.
The top dp was embossed with TH Swirls (as if the wind was blowing), my image was stamped with TH Fire Brick Sponged while still in the Deckle frame with Yellow, Orange and a darker Orange. Colored the flowers, leaves and the bird with copics and added a ribbon from my stash. My inspiration for this card was my backyard this morning; wind speed 20 miles per hour, temp was 32% and there was frost everywhere! I hope everyone is doing well in blog land.
Gotta go get the puppies up!!!!!

Loving your leaves and that cute little birdie's house! It's much too cold at your place -- gotta say, I like temps in the 70's better!
