Celebrate Autumn

Hello today blog friends!  I was lucky enough to find some time last night to create a card.  I was inspired by some of the bold, beautiful Autumn colors I love to celebrate at this time of the year; and it was fun to be able to incorporate several of those favorite colors into my card.  I hope it captures the essence of the season.
I used a piece of pattern paper for my background, and  I used a Spellbinders background die-cut as the focal point to stand my sentiment.  I added some Petaloo flowers and felt leaves around the sentiment, and I tied blue string and burgundy seam binding around my card and tied them in big bows.  I placed a tiny chipboard heart in the center of the bow.

I was happy to find these challenges where I can link my card and play along in their challenges:
Joy Clair - October Color Inspiration/Photo Challenge - I loved incorporating these amazing Autumn colors

Scrapy Land - Challenge #52 - I do more Harvest rather than a whole lot of Halloween.  I hope that's alright in this challenge.  I was inspired more by the season and colors of Halloween/Harvest Time, and less with an actual occasion per say.

CropStop Challenge - Linky Party #21 - I used blue burlap string, Petaloo flowers, and Tim Holtz Distress Inks

I'm grateful for your visit today, and greatly appreciate your comments.  I hope you are also enjoying this beautiful time of the year.
