Gently Falling

WOW…October 1st!  Where did the summer go?  Well, it certainly feels and looks like Fall today.  Cooler, rainy and the leaves are dropping quickly!  Just starting to turn the lighter yellow colors and a few reds.  Football weather!  So, my card reflects the "falling" leaves.  Although, I really do not notice any "blue" leaves hanging around, I still love the colors in the Create with Connie and Mary Holiday Edition Saturday Challenge for subscribers this week!  Every week we have a challenge where subscribers who play along are entered into a drawing with win one of TWO $75 gift certificates or one of two free subscriptions to the next edition of Create with Connie and Mary!

 

 

Here is my card using Soft Suede, Pool Party and Pear Pizzazz:

 

 

I used a sketch from The Paper Players a few weeks ago.  The base of the card is Pear Pizzazz and I layered on Soft Suede.  I used the Pool Party print from Spice Cake (what else???) and wrapped the Crochet Trim around it to tie a knot.  I placed the panel of Pear Pizzazz off center on the front and added a layer of Soft Suede and three leaves from Gently Falling stamp set.  I used the Rock N Roll technique…stamping in Pool Party first and rolling in Pear Pizzazz…love that look.  What you CAN'T see is the Champagne Shimmer Paint that I touched on the leaves…gives them a nice sparkle!  The greeting, So Very Sorry, is from Three Little Words.

 

Well, stay warm this weekend…it is supposed to continue to be cool and rainy here!  Make sure to check out what the rest of the Create with Connie and Mary Design Team did this week!

Pretty card Connie. I like how the leaves match the DSP!
