Welcoming Fall

Happy Thursday people :)
It's been a busy week with the kids back at school and setting up routines again.
When I took my youngest DD to the bus stop I noticed the changing leaves and realised Fall (or Autumn as I call it) has come our way. Fall is my favourite season so I made this card to announce it's arrival.
I used some of the new goodies from the Holiday Mini. I kept the card really simple with only a few embellishments. I water coloured the image and cut it out. Yes it did take a while but I had seen it in the new Mini and loved the effect. I hand stitched (yes with a needle and thread) the stitching on the very Vanilla card stock.
The card base is textured 'More Mustard' card stock. I rarely use the textured stuff but I do like it. It means I can add a little "something something" without having to stamp or find some matching DSP. I did use a small amount of the new 'Spice Cake' DSP under the image but not my usual amount.
Here's a close up...
Thanks for taking a peek!
