Take Time To Watch The Leaves Turn

Hello again! 
I'm back with a card for Fall! I think this is my most favorite time of the year...specially here in Oregon because after all you can't enjoy living here if you don't enjoy the rain!! I love the smell of the rain, the cooler temperatures Fall brings and of course the gorgeous colors of the trees and falling leaves!

I searched through all my rubba and thought this image from Kraftin Kimmie Stamps along with one of my new sentiments would be perfect!

 The stamp is called Gwendolyn which can be found in at Kraftin Kimmie Stamps HERE! I bought a bunch of Kimmie stamps awhile back and this was one of them I just had to have! So beautiful!

I was trying to make it look like falling leaves...I think I got a little carried away with the dotty background? I asked for my hubbies opinion and he was like, "don't worry, you didn't kill it" other words, I

The sentiment is from my new Fall theme set just recently created and can be found HERE! I also posted some freebies the other day which coordinates with that set if you would like to snag theme HERE!

The beautiful flower is from ABespokeTouch on Etsy...she makes the most gorgeous fabric flowers and has excellent prices too! The skeleton leaves and filigree corners are from WOC!
