Fall Delight

Happy Fall!!  It's a gray, cool, rainy day here in Texas, and I'm loving it!!!!!!!!!!!  Fall is finally here in my neck of the woods, and I'm hoping this is the last of the 100+ degree weather.  I raced home after work to create this card and I love how it turned out.  :-)

I had two challenges in mind when I was creating this card.  The challenge at Cheery Lynn Designs #45 is Borders and Edgers and the Color Throwdown #209 has colors that match perfectly with the papers that I wanted to use.  For the Cheery Lynn Designs challenge, I used the Lace Light Deco border at the bottom of this card, but I changed it a little bit.  I cut out the border, then cut that in half and layered one piece behind and slightly up from the other one.  It's a great way to change up the look of a border.

For the Color Throwdown, I definitely used Summer Sun (sunflower), Chocolate Chip (flourish, border), and Old Olive (leaves, background layer).  The Rust and Cherry Cobbler can be seen in the patterned paper that I used here, and you can see the other three colors in the patterned paper as well.  It's like this paper was destined to be used for this particular color challenge.  

Most of the supplies that I used on this card were purchased from Classy Cards 'n Such:

Harvest Lane 6x6 paper pad (Simple Stories)
Lace Light Deco Border (Cheery Lynn Designs)
Leaf die (Cheery Lynn Designs)
Mini Fanciful Flourish (Cheery Lynn Designs)
Sunflower die (Cheery Lynn Designs)
