Autumn Blessings

Boy did we have a weather change this week! Last week we were in the 90's and today the low 60's.
A little more gradual change would have been nice.

Today I have a card I made for three challenges, Whimsical Wednesdays create a Fall card/project inspired by Fall colors, the twist this week is to create a handmade embellishment, Mojo Monday and The Kraft Journal lavish layers challenge.


Here is the sketch from Mojo Monday:


For my handmade embellishment, I made a fabric flower:



Supplies used: cardstock light brown, cream; patterned papers - Autumn Cider, Fall leaves and Autumn Harvest from Night Fall by American Crafts; border punch - Fiskars; leaves - Prima; Ribbon - Michael's; glubers - Cosmo Cricket; Fabric - my stash; rub on alphabet - Purkey miniMarks by American Crafts

Very Pretty Card ! I especially love the fabric flower. The colors are so right for the layout, too. Everything about it says "Fall Is Here".
