Fall Fun...

This week's CAS-ual Fridays Challenge is one of my favorites.  I think because the weather has been so hot, I am ready for Fall....and the challenge is all about Fall.  SO, here is my card for this week....

CAS-ual Fridays


I am ready for these fall colors and the cool air, sitting on the deck, bar-b-ques.  Yes.  Favorite time of year hands down!   

My card was pretty easy to make.  I just took 4 colors of Versa-magic and sponged them in layers on the card base, masking of the top and sides so it only colored where the leaves would be.  Then I cut this image out with my Cameo....I got it from the Silhouette store....and then ran that top piece through with the woodgrain plate.  I added a little WMS sentiment from Teeny Trees on vellum to finish it off.  I am so in the mood to make some more fall type cards!  I can't wait to see yours.  I hope you can play along and link up this week!

Oh Laurie, this is beautiful! I just love the colors you chose and the fact that they peek through the leaves you cut. Then the vellum on top is the perfect touch!
