# 192 First Day of Fall

Over at My Sheri Crafts it is my BFF Sandy's turn to choose the theme of our fortnightly challenge and she has come up with 'The First Day of Fall'. It is her favorite time of the year as she loves the colour of fall.

I decided to make a card but this time with no image! I knew I wanted to just put a sentiment in there so that is what I've done.

The card is a 5x7 card base in forest green. I made my own decorative paper by stamping a flourish and embossing in white, then added several layers of distress ink until I was happy. I matted that on to gold mirri tied a tartan ribbon around and added it to the card.
Then I printed my text and cut out using a SB die then adding mirri. I added a collection of gems to the top corners and a pile of leaves to the bottom.
Then just for Sandy I added the perfect adjective by Verve which I cut out twice.

Now it's your turn to show us your "fall" card.
Thanks for stopping by today.
