Sisterhood Monthly Swap Fall

Happy Fall Y'all! I can't believe that another year is almost over. Where did the time go? All I can say is that I'm glad that fall is finally here. Summer was so dreadfully hot and then we had that crazy earthquake followed by Hurricane Irene. Hopefully the winter will be peaceful. My card is for a monthly swap that I am in with a group of wonderful ladies. This month's swap is hosted by Paola. She has given us the challenge to come up with a fall themed card. For my card I used a layout from PaperCrafts Magazine. My card is a gift card holder. Many of the ladies in the group love Starbucks and some can't get enough of the Fall flavors of Pumpkin Spice or Salted Caramel Mochas. Since most of us are not co-located to share a cup of coffee together, then this was the next best thing I could think of. The designer paper is an oldie from K&Company. The ribbon is from Stampin' up. The scallop border, sentiment, and die-cut flower are from Papertrey Ink. I hope the girls like it since this is a very different type of card me since I mostly like to coloring with my copics and there isn't even an image to color on this card.

Thank you for visiting and have a wonderful day!

Hi Mary! I know I'm months behind, but this is a great card! While it is different from what you're used to doing, I think it's very artistic and shows how creative you are! I'm sure the gals who received it loved it, and its little surprise! :-D
