FALL ... beautiful FALL!

Hello Friends!

I warned you last week that I'd be sharing more Fall cards using some of the beautiful images from the Crafty Secrets SUNFLOWER collection and today I have one of those creations for you.

This beautiful digi set comes in two shades ...
black/white as well as brown/white.
Be sure to check out THIS post to see how you can change your PNG files to a different color palette.

Once again I have used my Spectrum Noir alcohol markers for coloring.
A sprinkling of Fall leaves and I'm happy with the outcome of this creation.
I have left it blank inside so it could be used for a variety of occasions!
Maybe a birthday card ...
or just a note to a friend that makes you smile!
