Hello Fall

Today's card uses a retired stamp from SCACD called Autumn. I just love this stamp! It makes me happy!

I always think it's fun to see the progress I've made in my coloring and crafting skills so I took a stroll down memory lane and found some cards I've made using this same stamp. You can see them HERE, HERE and HERE.

This is also one of those cards that stumped me. I got the image colored, the basic card layout done and then I sat and stared. I knew it needed something but couldn't decide what. After many attempts that just didn't feel "quite right", I finally followed my own advice and added butterflies, and I felt it worked.

I also tried my hand at heat embossing the sentiment again and I think I'm improving. 



I'm entering this card into the following challenges~

Isn't it great to look back on previous images of the same stamp and see how you skills have improved with time. This is such a bright and cheerful image with the richness of autumn colours making her 'pop' from the page. Thanks for playing alone with our 'Autumn Colours' challenge at Fussy and Fancy, and good luck
