Sisterhood - Fall

Hello Friends ... thanks for stopping by today!
It's time once again for a new challenge at The Sisterhood of Crafters and this time around we are celebrating FALL.  Yep, it's certainly that time of the year and the leaves here in my neighborhood are gorgeous.  Check out the tree in my next door neighbors front yard ... isn't it GORGEOUS!?!

Diane is our hostess today so please pop over to the Sisterhood and show your love.  And of course we'd LOVE to have you join in our challenge fun!

For my card today, I've actually used this opportunity to make a birthday card for a dear friend of mine who will be actually celebrating her birthday at the beach this year (lucky girl!!).  She doesn't do much 'computering' so I'm not worried about her seeing her card before it gets to her in the mail.


A while back, I cut several base cards in this tri-shutter style and the orange base was just perfect for my Fall card.  I've actually been able to use up some scraps that were laying around on this card too!  LOVE THAT!!!
My front panel is from a Crafty Secrets booklet ... the journaling portion and I thought it made a nice background for my sentiment.  (I will add a white panel on the brown and include a personal message.)  
My leaves were die cut from a crap of the 2-sided plaid paper ... perfect!!  When I cut my Cheery Lynn Designs border, I notice the piece left over actually looked like a banner.  So, I did a straight cut and used it for my banner and added Creative Memories letter stickers for her name.

Fall is such a beautiful time of the year in my area!  When I was taking the picture of the neighbors tree, I noticed the one single purple bloom in my big pot of mums on the front porch ... it just called out for me to take a picture of it ...  lol ... so I did!
How cute is that!!!  Do you think it knew my favorite color was purple??  LOL
