Autumn is the Second Spring

I love this sentiment especially since Fall is my favorite time of year, so that's why I used it as the main focal point on this card.

The stamp is from The Paper Company set Autumn Harvest along with the image.  I couldn't wait to put these colors together. I love the way SU's new Pool Party looks with the yellow mustard color.  The patterned paper is DCWV new Autumn stack Harvest Gathering.  I had originally stamped some leaves and cut them out but I thought it looked too sloppy so I decided to cut some leaves with the cricut A Child's Year cart at 1 1/4in.  To give the leaves a little bit of texture I stamped the leaves from SU's set French Foilage over top.  The pool party panel is embossed with a Sizzix folder and edged with SU's scallop trim border punch.  I think this one is my favorite of the fall cards I've done this year. I hope you liked it too.  See you next week.

I love this Carrie. You are right the color combo is fabulous (need to remember it). The stamping on the leaves makes them look so dimensional, and I love the small branch behind the sentiment, looks so pretty.
