Fall


A strange sort of day..a day I felt like taking some time out. But perhaps is's because I only had about 4 hours sleep last night, I was up at 5.03am to watch the F1 qualifying and WOW!! it was amazing - a very messy qualies indeed, but we have a good grid for the race tomorrow.

So here I am another card forward. I will be off to my bed shortly as up again at 5 in the morning for the race.
This card is for 365 Cards day 217 - 'Stampin' Saturday'
The card had to have stamping the same colour as the card.
This was a similar challenge to the one I did for making my own background but certainly didn't pressure myself to do that again, so I chose this nice tan cardstock from my stash and used Versamark on a lovely leaf stamp from QVC and it gives a great watermark effect, so I think this meets with the criteria.
The tree is a free download but I can't find the designer, sorry.
I saw someone had knotted ribbon some time ago and filed it in my brain and today it popped out for me...it's nice when my brain's filing system works.
Finally I used some square sticky letters to spell 'Fall' but cut them so they looked like leaves...hopefully. These alpha stickers too are very old from QVC.
Job done !
