Fall for November

If you haven't done so already, sign up for my The Greeting Farm blog candy located in my right sidebar.
Good Morning all! Can you believe it is February? You know what that means? I'm late with my January Sisterhood cards. This month's theme was given to us by the talented Michelle. She has tasked us with making a card about you and the month you were born. What a challenge. I was born in November and while I love the month...it got the short end of the stick in flowers and birthstone. I couldn't find anything cute about a scorpion. So I told my concerns to Michelle and she said to do what makes you happy. Finally I knew I was going to use yellow since that is November's color and then I love the trees in the fall. I went looking through my stamps and found the Trendy Trees set from Stampin Up. Then I saw this card from Dawn Easton. I knew that is what I wanted to do. It is pretty much a case of the card. I even used the same October Afternoon paper line and just picked different patterns. I also used a tree that look more like the leaves are about to fall off. I couldn't get my bow to work out right so I settled for a knot. I hope the girls like it. And can you believe it...no coloring!!!

Thank you for stopping by today and I hope you have a wonderful day.
